If you’re looking for a hotter banana pepper, look no further than the Inferno F1 pepper! Also known as the Inferno banana pepper, this is a Hungarian Hot Wax Hybrid and is a very productive hybrid pepper plant with high yields. Easy to grow, the Inferno pepper plant will produce approximately 8 inches long pods which will be one of the bigger peppers you’ll grow. The smooth-skinned pods look identical to longer slender hot peppers like the Red Long Cayenne Peppers, or even shaped like bananas.
The large Inferno pepper will ripen from pale-lime/green, yellow, to then turning red. You can harvest the Inferno hot pepper at any stage depending on the level of spiciness you want, but we recommend harvesting them when they turn yellow or red because they have more unforgettable flavors! The Inferno chili is great for roasting, pickling, and frying, and to use as a topping like pizzas and burgers.
