4" Pepper 'Hungarian Sweet Banana'
Hungarian Yellow Sweet Pepper Seeds (Banana Type) 1915 Heritage Vegetable. Hungarian Sweet Banana produces, not surprisingly, banana shaped fruits between 15-20 cm (6-8″) long with a delightful bright waxy-yellow colour that typically changes to bright scarlet red as they mature. These stocky plants 50-60 cm (20-24″) tall produce a heavy yield of fruit. Depending on growing conditions, this pepper may mature to a brilliant sunshine yellow or a more subtle lemon yellow. Excellent for preserves such as pickling, in-oil antipasti or canning.
How To Grow
Transplant after hardening off, in late May to early June. Full sun and a well-drained soil is best. Space the plants 30 cm (12″) apart in rows spaced 60 cm (24″) apart. Control weeds and avoid high nitrogen fertilizers. Try harvesting the peppers at different maturities to experience a wider range of flavours and textures. Staking is recommended with most varieties. Note: Estimated days to maturity are based on counting the days after transplanting.
When To Harvest
Harvest when the peppers turn yellow, for best flavor let them ripen on the plant for as long as possible.
