I notice that in my crawl logs that all of http sites are able to be crawled with out issue but my one https site has never been able to be crawled. Our https site uses a Verisgn certificate. In order for this to work do I need to import the cert into SharePoint Managed Trust???

Will do ...

I guess my question is for you my own knowledge as well but it is a *must* to import the cert into sharepoint when you have a site that uses https?????

Could this missing cert also cause our sharepoint site to perform poorly?

Sometimes you need to import the Root cert, but not always.

Why only sometimes?

IN my test environment which mimics my product environment uses a self-signed cert for the https site which is not imported in sharepoint and seems to be able to crawl the SSL site without issue.

Sometimes SharePoint recognizes and trusts the root CA on a publicly or privately signed certificate.

Also, see this post for slowness related to certs.
