Sweet Banana Peppers are an All-America Selections winning pepper variety.

A winning pepper variety because these plants produce sweet fruits without even a trace of hot/spicy-ness.

Banana Peppers can be eaten at any size but are best tasting at six to seven inches.

You will know that a Banana Pepper is ripe and ready for picking when it turns a light-yellow color. Vigorous, erect plants hold the peppers off the ground.

Banana Peppers are perfectly suited for snacking, salads, sandwiches, and pickling, offering juicy sweetness without the heat. This pepper variety offers a high yield and an unbeatable flavor, with plants growing up to 18 inches tall to keep your fruits off the ground.

When ripe, they turn a light-yellow color for easy harvesting.
