    I'd like to know as well, my sweet banana peppers are yellow, and haven't changed colour at all, though it is likely early here. I don't know what colour they would turn into. Be nice to know.

    Banana’s tend to stay yellow. They will eventually turn red but it will take a while.

    The reading I'm finding online says as they turn red they will sweeten as well, is that your experience?
    Picked some chili peppers and discovered that I do indeed have jalapenos as well. I don't recall my chilis ever being so robust looking, some are nearly 3\4" in diameter at the stem. Also, what gives with the 2 yellowish chilis? Came off a struggling plant, mind you.

    Couldn’t tell you as we eat them as soon as they are full size and yellow.

    The Fushimi's that I grow turn red. And are they ever sweet. I thought they would be hot when I first grew them. Perhaps they are the same as your yellows in that way.

    This year I grew hot hungarian wax, a handful of regular jalapenos for salsa, and a couple of the bonnie hybrid sweet peppers the farm & home next door carried after the deer at all my seedlings for the third time. I did get one of the coolapenos because my father has diverculitis and can't stomach the hot peppers at all.

    The sweet peppers are now turning ripe, and for all their pretty colors, they don't have much flavor at all. The jalapenos are producing more than I will ever eat, but I will make candied jalapenos in half pints for tacos and eating on crackers with cream cheese all winter. I actually really like the cool-a-peno, more than I thought I would. There is a lot to be said for enjoying the flavor of a pepper without the waiting out the burn, and my father has been thrilled he can get 'his' peppers in everything without any stomach upset.

    Baker Seed has a heatless jalapeno I will probably order for next year; I really miss the poblanos, but the critters chewed off every single one of them I planted this year.
