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.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eSweet 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.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eA good idea is to get an early start by planting the seeds in a greenhouse first, then transplanting once the weather warms up.

Available in nearly every possible color and shape from the super sweet to super spicy, pepper grows stronger and tastes better with a season of full sun and high heat. Pepper plants thrive in pots and containers and can even perennially overwinter in warm enough regions, maturing into bushy, vibrant, and well-stemmed patio favorites.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003eHarvesting Sweet Banana Sweet Peppers\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eSome sweet and bell peppers can be harvested as soon as 60-70 days, but most hot varieties are ready about 100 days from sowing or when skin has changed color. Know the individual variety you are sowing to know when color has reached ripeness. Peppers can be picked early to ripen indoors or left to ripen and change color on the vine. Using a knife or shears, carefully snip off peppers while leaving some stem attached to the fruit. If working with hot peppers, wear gloves to avoid skin contact with capsaicin.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eBright yellow fruits are sweet, crunchy and about 4-6\" long.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eMany folks eat them right out of the garden, but they are delicious pickled as well.
