Harvesting banana peppers - when and how to pick banana peppers.

When to pick banana peppers

Hot banana peppers should usually be picked later to allow heat levels to rise. Sweet banana peppers are typically harvested before fully ripe.

Hot or Sweet?

Sweet - Pick when color is pale yellow.

Wait For The Right Color...

Hot - Pick when the peppers are fully ripe, usually a deep orange or red color.

Always pick banana peppers when they are ready for harvest. This will signal the plant to continue producing more peppers!

Pick promptly!
