Hot Banana Peppers - when to pick?
I'm growing some hot yellow banana peppers and a few of them are pretty large now. One in particular is looking pretty yellow and is about 5" long. Since it is now about 5mm from the ground I was wondering if it would be okay to pick it before it gets too close to the soil - I want to make sure that my first hot pepper ever is actually... hot.
Does anyone have a photo of a nice, ripe, yellow hot banana pepper that I can compare it to? Sadly I'm at work a LOT over the next couple of days so I can't take a photo for you guys...
