Sweet peppers are a favorite home garden vegetable. Sweet banana produces smooth, tapered, yellow fruit 6” long, 2” thick on plants that are 20-24” tall, that may be fried, or used raw or on relish platters, in salads, or stuffed.

SOWING…Start seed indoors 6 to 8 weeks before danger of frost is past. Plant seed 1 inch apart and cover with ¼ inch of fine soil, well pressed down. Place seed starting tray in a very warm spot (both night and day) and cover with a frame of glass or clear plastic wrap to preserve moisture until germination is complete, then place the tray in a warm sunny window.

GERMINATION…Germinates in 12 to 21 days depending on soil and weather conditions. Cool temperatures will delay germination.

REMARKS…Many gardeners hold off heavy fertilization until the first blossom produces a small fruit which is picked off. Pepper plants produce more fruit if kept picked and not allowed to ripen. Cut instead of pulling from plant to avoid injury to plant.
