Hungarian Sweet Banana produces, not surprisingly, Banana shaped fruits between 15-20cm (6-8") long with a delightful bright waxy-yellow colour that typically changes to bright scarlet red as they mature. These stocky plants 50-60cm (20-24") tall produce a heavy yield of fruit. Depending on growing conditions, this pepper may mature to a brilliant sunshine yellow or a more subtle lemon yellow. Excellent for preserves such as pickling, in-oil anitpasti or canning.

How to Grow
Start indoors mid February to late March. Use a soil-less growing mix. Sow seed 6mm (1/4") deep. Maintaining the growing medium at a minimum temperature of 21C (70F) will enhance germination. Grow the seedlings under bright light and temperatures of 16-21C (60-70F) to produce strong, stocky plants. Transplant after hardening off, in late May to early June. Full sun and a well-drained soil is best. Space the plants 30cm (12") apart in rows spaced 60cm (24") apart. Control weeds and avoid high nitrogen fertilizers. Try harvesting the peppers at different maturities to experience a wider range of flavours and textures. Staking is recommended with most varieties. Note: Estimated days to maturity are based on counting the days after transplanting.
