Profuse bearer of 6-inch-long, medium hot peppers. Excellent for pickling, frying, or roasting. Just hot enough to provide a little bite without scaring away the milder palates in the family. Produce well even in hot weather. Fruit matures from light yellow to orange to red. Mark these as different from the sweet banana peppers in your garden.
