Sweet Banana Peppers

Sweet Banana Peppers

Sweet Bananas may look like their hot counter-part but they are mild and sweet.  Peppers are not only great tasting, but they are also very high in vitamin C.  Being sensitive to the cold, planting should be delayed until the danger of frost is past in the spring.  Ideal temperatures are 70 to 80 degrees F during the day, and 60 to 70 degrees F at night.  Usually, the plants set satisfactory crops when temperatures are between 65 and 80 degrees F and the soil is well-supplied with moisture.  Avoid a soggy, water-logged soil condition when growing peppers.

How To Grow: Plant in full sun.

Spacing: Plant 18″ apart.

Height: Grows 24″ to 36″ tall.

Outstanding Features: Produces an abundance of peppers on one plant.

Tips: Water plants thoroughly after transplanting. Avoid planting under conditions that will stunt the plants and lead to poor production, such as cold weather, lack of sufficient soil moisture, or lack of sufficient fertilizer.  Water deeply but not too often.
