Sweet Banana Pepper (Heirloom 72 Days)

3 reviews

Hungarian Heirloom. Produces abundant 6” long Hungarian-type peppers, sometimes over 20 per plant. The attractive yellow color eventually turns crimson and the flavor is sweet and slightly spicy. 

20 seeds  



Caspsicum annuum

Germination: 10-14 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 75-85ºF. Cooler soil temperatures slow germination time.

Seed Sowing Depth: ¼” deep

Starting Indoors:  8-10 weeks before the last frost. Sow in flats/cells/pots. Provide 75-85ºF soil temperatures. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water-soluble fertilizer (diluted to ¼ of suggested measurement). Transplant seedlings 18-24” apart after the last frost.

Sowing Outdoors: Not recommended, especially in northern areas

How much does a packet plant: 20-25 foot single row  

Harvest: Use a sharp instrument to cut the peppers from the plant. Pick the first fruits when they reach usable size, this helps accelerate the growth of the other peppers on the plant. Leave some peppers on the plant to mature so they can change color and sweeten up.

Tips: Pinch-off early flowers or tiny fruit on any seedlings before placing them in the ground. Plant in fertile soil, amend with compost if needed. It helps to use row cover early in the season, giving the plants extra warmth, especially in the north. Side dress when flowers begin to form.

Sweet Banana Pepper

All the Sweet Banana Pepper seeds I planted germinated. Two plants were attacked by bugs so I pulled them out, but I still have two remaining that are doing very well and still producing banana peppers. I would highly recommend this product.

Sweets peppers

Just planted them about a week ago, do not see them sprouting yet. Love them for stir-try with Italian sausage. We are getting lots of rain hope they grow.
