Excellent Banana Peppers
Reviewed By: Consumer (Albion, Indiana)
I started my plants as seeds and relocated them to my garden. They took the transplant well. I did not get the amount of peppers that I had hoped for. the weather last summer in northern Indiana was strange. We had very strong winds and monsoon rains. More than once I had to stand my plants back up do to the wind knocking them down. They produced very well for the circumstances. I would recommend planting them in a place to be blocked from strong winds. I am going to purchase them again!

These peppers were the first to grow, the first to pick and they just keep coming back over and over. They're good eating too!
