Named for its banana-like shape, this variety bears sweet, mild banana peppers that mature from yellow, to orange, and then to crimson red. Plants fruit prolifically, easily producing up to 25 to 30 pods per plant. Banana peppers are great for frying and pickling, and are an excellent choice for making pepper rings for sandwiches. Great for containers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought two of these last year, and I barely kept up, they were so productive! Fruits were big thick and delicious! As second year plants they are doing even better than before. It has more peppers that have even thicker walls and are getting a lot bigger than last year. They taste great pickled, cooked and raw. I even dried some out for a seasoning powder, and I use it on everything!! My toddler loves snacking on them. Prettiest pepper in my garden. I love the crimson color, and some of mine even have streaks of purple.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't go wrong: Initially thought deep yellow was mature (& they were good) but the orange & crimson are delicious, great yield bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love our sweet banana pepper plant. It was a good decision to buy only one. We are still picking peppers every other week and making 5 pints canned pepper rings each time. We must have 30 something pints and they are so good, we eat them on just about everything. Thank you. I looked up saving the seeds but then noticed it's a hybrid. Darn.
