Should I pinch the buds off a Cayenne hot pepper to make it grow larger?


I have a number of Long Red Cayenne hot pepper plants growing in pots, they are about 7 inches tall now and I have already pinched one set of buds off, which spurred growth but now I have a decent amount of new buds forming. Should I pinch these as well to get a fuller plant or should I let them grow? I added the picture below of one of my pepper plants

    Thanks for the help! I actually just put some fresh compost in the containers yesterday and got like 2 inches of rain last night! Now only if we could get some sunny days! Lol

    Thanks for the tip! I'll probably use fresh compost and miracle grow
