Sweet Banana Pepper

$ 1.99

General Plant Information: The banana pepper (also known as the yellow wax pepper or banana chili) is a medium-sized member of the chili pepper family that has a mild, tangy taste. While typically bright yellow, it is possible for them to change to green, red, or orange as they ripen. It is often pickled, stuffed or used as a raw ingredient in foods. It is a cultivar of the species Capsicum annum. Its flavor is not very hot (0–500 Scotville units) and, as is the case with most peppers, its heat depends on the maturity of the pepper, with the ripest being sweeter than younger ones.

Information about our seeds: Most of our seeds come from traditional crops that farmers have cultivated for many years. These seeds are not GMO, do not chemically or biologically treated and are processed with minimal mechanization.


Guarantee: Our seeds are guaranteed to be fresh and viable with a germination rate of over 80%. Seeds are living products that depend on many factors such as proper planting time and technique, depth of sowing, soil, proper germination environment, fertility, disease control, insect control, and reasonable weather for direct sown seeds. If any of these factors are not right, it may cause the seed to not perform and because most of these are out of our control, most of the success of these seeds is in the hands of the grower. If they have been cared for properly and still fail to grow, we will replace the seed, one time.
