Sweet Banana Sweet Pepper

A favorite in the home garden, Sweet Banana Sweet Pepper produces elongated, 6-in. fruits that start yellow and turn scarlet red when fully ripe. The sweet, mild, waxy, thin-walled peppers are delightful in salads and for fresh eating, and they are exquisitely pungent when pickled. The peppers have no bitter after taste. An early, very prolific Hungarian yellow wax pepper, it grows best in full sun and rich, well-drained soil. Start pepper seeds indoors about 8 weeks before transplanting to the garden. While the fruits can be harvested when yellow, their sweetness increases as they remain on the plant. 68 DAYS.
