Bring the beauty of the sunset to your backyard with these sweet and crunchy banana peppers. These colorful and tasty peppers are great fresh or canned, or you can cut Sweet Sunset Peppers into rings for salads, sandwiches, and pizza.
Sweet Sunset Peppers are super compact and work great in a small home garden or a container on the patio. But don’t let the small size fool you. This plant is known for its big yields, often producing 15-20 peppers per plant. The Sweet Sunset Peppers mature to around 7 inches long and turn from green to light yellow when they are ready to harvest. Practice a little patience (we know, it’s hard) and the plants will continue to turn to orange and finally to a beautiful shade of red. Sweet Sunset Pepper plants continue producing and look great all season.
Fun Fact:The Sweet Sunset Pepper was the 2015 All-America Selection award winner – which means, it’s pretty much the Miss America of sweet peppers. Judges commented on the good eating quality.
