Sweet Pepper - Sweet Banana
All American Selection (AAS) Bronze Medal winner for 1941 and still extremely popular.
Description: Long, tapered fruits turn from light-green to yellow, then orange and red. Delicious for frying or fresh in salads. Even after more than 70 years, this is still extremely popular pepper. Large, pointed fruits measure 6-7" long and 1 1/2" across. The mild yellow peppers ultimately turn brilliant red. A favorite for pickling.
Plant Space –18” Row Space – 24-36”
Matures in 72 days
Harvest: Like cucumbers and summer squash, peppers are usually harvested at an immature stage. The traditional bell pepper, for example, is harvested green, even though most varieties will mature red, orange, or yellow. Peppers may be harvested at any stage, but their flavor doesn’t fully develop until maturity. Fully ripe peppers in multi-colors are delightful in the garden as well as in salads.
