This bowl of banana peppers (also known as yellow wax peppers or banana chilis) is the last of the harvest. They are medium-sized chili peppers that have a mild, tangy taste. While typically bright yellow, it is possible for them to change to green, red, or orange as they ripen.
Different varieties of Capsicum annuum do well at the Veggie-Bed. One such variety is the cow-horn pepper.
Both banana peppers and cow-horn peppers are a hot-weather crop. Requiring full sun and a well-drained, nutrient-rich soil they flourish during the growing season.
