Gardeners' Notes:

Positive critterologist On Mar 18, 2005, critterologist from Frederick, MD (Zone 6b) wrote:

Vigorous plants produce lots of peppers that are much larger and thicker-walled than standard banana peppers. Taste is sweetest when ripened to orange/red, but immature fruits have a nice flavor (not bitter). Very attractive cut into rings, especially if you include a variety of color stages.
