Heirloom sweet banana pepper varieties

georgia_transplant(7b)July 1, 2008

This is my first year gardening and I am already thinking of what has worked and what has not, so I can improve next year.

Sweet peppers were almost a bust - the plant is healthy but has only produced one fruit.

I really want to grow heirloom peppers. What varieties have worked well for you here in GA? I read elsewhere on the forum that banana peppers do really well.

Thanks for any suggestions!

Our banana peppers did great last year and seem to be doing well so far this year. They aren't heirloom though. We've also had a ton of luck with jalapeno and ancho. Bell peppers did okay, but not as good as the others.

You are welcome georgia! I was also thinking that maybe you could check the rate and review vendor forum for sites that deal in heirloom seeds. I also seem to recall their being a thread on the seed exchange conversation side about vendors and I'm pretty sure that one of them sold lots of heirloom veggies. Check this thread and see if you find a good site:
