Banana is a milder version of its genetic brother the Hungarian Hot Wax. This medium sized plant produces excellent yields of 6 to 8 inches long by 1 to 1.25 inches wide banana shaped fruits (hence the name) which mature from greenish yellow to red. This is a very easy to grow and a flavorsome variety and a good choice for new chile growers.
History: Tomato Growers Supply Company donated this cultivar 2005 and was given a PI #
