This banana pepper sets heavy yields of 6- to 8-inch fruit. Elongated, flattish, thick-walled, and very flavorful, the peppers reach about 2 inches across at the shoulders, tapering in three lobes to a point. Earlier to mature than most others, this fruit turns from green to yellow to deep red. It can be harvested at any point after turning yellow, and is superb for frying, slicing for fresh eating, and using in salads, sandwiches, and stews.
Pageant owes its heavy yields to a good disease resistance package. It shows particular resistance to bacterial leaf spot, making it a good choice for a wide range of climates. This is no "ornamental" -- its crops are heavy and delicious!
