A light yellow to red, medium-thick wall fruit. Strong upright plant growth. Also known as "Hot Banana". Use pickled or fresh in salads and relishes. Grows to 5" long. The plants are dwarf, bushy, 14-16" tall. Very productive.

Start seed indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost. A heat mat helps to speed up the germination process. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 65-85 degrees. Peppers generally have long growing seasons and grow slowly during cool temperatures. Delay transplanting until your soil has thoroughly warmed up in the spring. A week before transplanting time, harden off plants by exposing them to an increasing number of hours outdoors each day. Peppers are less cold tolerant than tomatoes.
