And when you get the DTM for the seller of the seeds nailed down, you will have to adjust it for your location. DTM's are only for determining whether a certain pepper or tomato is early, mid-season, or late for Most growers - kind of like an average. It can also be affected by the weather in your area during that growing season. And the next year it will likely be different for the following season, and different still for subsequent seasons.

I usually deal with the following. Very Early, Early, Mid, Mid/Late, and Late. To try to track anything more than generalities like these will drive you insane. Mother Nature likes to test us and this is her biggest source of her laughter at we humans.
