Sweet Banana - A great pepper for short season climates because it produces so quickly. It is versatile and flavorful and can be used successfully in a wide range of dishes. Pickled, stuffed or jellied are a few.
These sweet and crunchy peppers can grow up to 6” long. The fruit turns from pale green to light yellow, at which point it is ready to harvest. If left on the plant they will continue to mature to red. Plants are 24“ tall and easy to grow. Capsicum annuum (75 days) Heirloom - Open-pollinated
Heat Level: Scoville 0 - 500
~ Packet contains 30 seeds.
In early spring, start seeds indoors 8 weeks prior to warm nightly temperatures. Place the seeds in sterile media and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, bright light and keep moist at all times. Seeds will germinate in 7 - 21 days. Transplant seedlings into pots and grow until there are 6 true leaves on the plant. Plant them directly into rich soil, 30” apart or into large 5 gallon containers. Harvest peppers when they are light yellow and full size.
Once you harvest them, eat them fresh or they're also easy to pickle for even more flavor.
