The banana pepper (also known as the yellow wax pepper or banana chili) is a member of the chili pepper family. It is often pickled and used as an ingredient in sandwiches. It is a variety of the species Capsicum annuum. Its shape and color resembles a banana. Its flavor is not very hot (0–500 Scoville units), and as is the case with most peppers, its hotness depends on the maturity of the pepper, with the most ripe being sweeter than younger ones.

Banana peppers are not the same as peperoncini (which some erroneously refer to as banana peppers).

Banana peppers are typically yellow, but can also be orange or red.

The plant requires full sun, and should be treated the same as most other plants in the pepper family. Plants can be grown from seed and cuttings.
