This year I had gotten a yellow banana pepper plant, which I never had
planted before, and was wondering when aer they ripe enough to pick.
Currently they are a greenish-yellow (more yellow then green though)
and quite long. Is there an appropriate look or length to know when
Thanks for any advice.
Wait until they become firm and don't give easily when squeezed. After that
they can remain on the plant for quite a long time and even turn red before
being picked. Keeping the peppers picked as soon as they are usable while
still greenish-yellow will encourage higher production.
Peppers don't pick easily even when ready to use. I take along clippers to
cut the stems when harvesting. Otherwise it's pretty easy to break the plant
stem when picking.
