Pepper seeds thrive in pots and containers and can perennially overwinter in warm enough regions. Pepper is a heat-loving crop and does not perform well in shade or cold soils. Sweet banana pepper seeds are best if started indoors 4-6 weeks prior to final spring frost. Sow 2-3 pepper seeds 1/4" deep per cell or peat pot in fertile, Organic, and well-drained soil with a pH of 6.0-6.8.
Sweet banana pepper seeds germinate in 7-21 days, transplanting strongest starts 12-18" apart in the garden or 1 plant per container. Pepper plants thrive in pots and containers with a phosphorus-rich potting mix and will benefit from staking and support as they become top-heavy during fruiting. Fruit may be picked early to ripen indoors or left to ripen on the vine. Using a knife or shears, carefully snip off peppers while leaving some stem attached to the fruit.
A good idea is to get an early start by planting the seeds in a greenhouse first, then transplanting once the weather warms up. Banana peppers get sweeter as they ripen.
