Topping makes the plant grow more side shoots and that's where peppers will grow. I can count 5 side shoots growing on that plant and they will all produce. The plant will grow like a bush instead of a single stem. Most plants will grow the side shoots later in the season, this speeds up the process. Think of it as letting tomato suckers grow except unlike tomatoes, all of the peppers will be the same size.
