Sweet Banana Pepper (70 days)

Bright yellow fruits are sweet, crunchy and about 4-6" long. 

Many folks eat them right out of the garden, but they are delicious pickled as well. 

Banana peppers get sweeter as they ripen. 

Makes a nice pickling pepper.  Many folks use banana peppers pickled on sandwiches and in salads.  Others make sweet pepper jam or relish.  I've been know to put them on pizza!

This is a great pepper for short season climates because it produces so quickly.   Remember to get an early start by planting in the greenhouse first and setting them out in the garden when the weather is warm. 

California Master Gardener handbook recommends this sweet banana peppers for California.

Recommended by the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences.  "These seed varieties have been tested and proven resilient in the Florida backyard garden."

The Texas Cooperative Extension at Texas A&M recommends this variety for Texas!

Planting Tips for Heirloom Sweat Peppers:

Start these vegetable seeds indoors about 6-8 weekds before your last frost date.  Be sure to keep them in a warm place so that the soil temperature stays above 75°.  Young heirloom pepper plants like it to stay warm and will develope well if kept happy.

Only transplanted after the heirloom pepper seedlings have shown several sets of their true leaves and only once you are sure the outside soil temperature is consistently above 65°. 

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
