Banana Peppers are very easy to grow and maintain. First, make sure that the banana pepper gets plenty of sunlight each day (at least eight hours). Second, keep the soil moist, but do not over water (unless you are planting the pepper in-ground). Additionally, it is very important that the plant to have proper drainage.

Banana peppers are easy to grow. I usually start from a mature plant from the nursery. They like plenty of sun, good drainage and water everyday. This not mean you should soak, unless the weather is very hot.

Remember that there are two different kinds of banana peppers. Some are sweet and some are hot. After deciding which to plant, keep in mind that a couple of plants will be enough for a single family. Set out plants only when the soil is above 60 degrees.

Banana peppers are really easy to grow. Begin by tilling a sunny place in your garden area to loosen up the soil, incorporating a good organic compost. Plant your banana pepper plants and water them well. Keep the soil evenly moist. Use a liquid fertilizer on them every other time that you water.

Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before transplanting or buy plants. Plant outside after all danger of frost is past. Space the plants 18"-24" in full sun. Keep the plants consistently moist and fertilize regularly. Harvest in about 60-75 days (depending on variety) when fruits turn yellowish.
