I have picked 6 jalapenos and a bell pepper already. Jalapenos grow crazy in my SFG! Off my one plant last year I had 200 peppers!

Fantastic herb lover, our central Ohio heat and humidity is good for something Yay! Just had 9 bush beans in one square sprout in 3 to three and 1/2 days Shocked Love the summer garden results so I plod on. Not keen with the heat, humidity, bugs, recently snakes, etc. so I'm a grumbling summer gardener. Today is 94 days till Autumn and that is what I really live for.

I don't know, I've just had them freshly sliced in salads, gives a nice mild little kick and just started to look up recipes, they can be stuffed. I suppose you could pickle them, seems you can pickle anything.

Congratulations on your first sweet banana peppers! Your plant looks full and healthy. Great job! I am growing some as well, and I love the idea of tossing some on a salad or a pizza. I'll definitely try that. I have four plants with a few peppers that are about 3"-4" long. I would like to pickle some as well, but I don't know that I will have enough to harvest at one time to create a whole batch. Does anyone know whether or not I can just toss 1 or 2 of them in a jar of vinegar or something as they mature?

Thanks for the nice thoughts!
I was reading about b. peppers and yours should be ready to eat, the article said to harvest when peppers are 2-4 inches long. Sorry I don't know about your vinegar question.

Llama Momma beautiful sweet banana pepper! I think your other plant is waiting to see if the first one knows what its doing and then it will jump in and say let me try that!

Mason Garden I don't know about just vinegar but I would think if you just put the pepper in pickle juice that would work. One year when I grew pickling cucumbers I put a few in the jar of pickle juice. I can't remember how long it was in there but it may have been about a week. I pulled one out and it was a wonderful pickle! I heard that you can reuse the juice indefinitely (that seems quite long to me). If you don't mind it tasting like a pickle, you could just drop it in that. I would think putting it in just vinegar would not be good because with pickles they use salt, water, vinegar and other things. I have never done pickle juice from scratch.

It's worth a try!

Thanks Tricia! I was able to go online and find recipes, and as you said, there are some other ingredients (vinegar + sugar + mustard seeds + celery seeds in the recipe I plan to use). Looks simple, and the reviews are great! I'm thinking now that maybe I should have planted a few more!
