CAPSICUM – Sweet Banana

(50 seeds)

$4.15

(3 customer reviews)

Looks like a chilli; tastes like a sweet pepper

Sweet Banana capsicums are a surprise. They have the elongated shape you'd expect from a hot chilli, but they have the sweet flavour of bell peppers. Horrify a friend by eating one whole! Their shape makes them great for chopping onto sandwiches and easy to chop for salads. Like other sweet peppers, you can eat them green or allow them to ripen for a higher vitamin content. Either way, they're delicious!

How to Sow

Growing peppers is easy, so direct sowing is usually fine, but for good control over your germination conditions, sowing in trays is usually a better bet. A light covering soil is all these seeds need. Then water well and only repeat when you see the soil surface starting to dry out.

How to Harvest

As soon as your peppers look big enough to eat, you can start to harvest them. If you want red peppers, leave them on the vine until they colour up. Cut them off with a sharp pair of scissors, secateurs or a knife to avoid damage to the fruit or the plant.

    I haven’t had much luck with getting these to sprout unlike the chilli or other capsicum.
