Sweet Banana Sweet Pepper Seeds

Organic, Heirloom

This packet yields approximately 16 plants when started indoors.
Availability: In Stock
This Hungarian heirloom from 1941 is the traditional pickling type. It is very long, bright yellow, and thick walled. Not a pickler? Enjoy it fresh as a snack or in salads, throw it on the grill, or use in any recipe calling for sweet pepper. Peppers will turn to a orange-red if left on the plant. A good short-season choice and successful in containers.

Great peppers

Great germination, strong plants & great peppers. I've used a different seed company's banana pepper seeds for several years, but the past two years the packages had chili/semi-hot/sweet pepper all mixed together. I'm glad they (the other company) messed up their seed packs or I might not have tried Botanical Interests banana pepper seeds. The peppers are meaty, crunchy and very prolific. They taste good yellow, but waiting to see how they are when changing color to the orange/red. Normally I don't write a review until the end of the growing season, but I don't foresee a problem with these since they're doing so well. If you live in a climate where you can start/grow these now, you won't be disappointed.
