Gold Rush Banana Pepper plugs are a high-yielding, hybrid variety of the popular Hungarian-style sweet pepper. Gold Rush produces large plants that are loaded with fruits. As a result, they will require significant support and frequent harvesting. Fruits can get as large as 7″ long and are typically around 1 1/2″ in diameter. They initially have a light yellow color which matures to a beautiful orange and will eventually turn bright red if left on the vine long enough. This banana pepper variety has thick walls which makes it ideal for processing or pickling. Pickled banana peppers are a great addition to any salad or sandwich. When cooked fresh, they also provide a nice complement to any fajita pepper medley.

Peppers are in the nightshade family along with tomatoes and eggplant. Plants in the nightshade family are susceptible to blossom end rot, which is a result of a calcium deficiency. To prevent or alleviate this problem, apply pelleted gypsum at the base of the plant at bloom set. We recommend using the Florida Weave trellising technique that involves using stakes and twine along the row. This ensures that plants and fruits stay off the ground, reducing the possibility of disease and keeping fruits clean.
*Note - limited quantity available each week, plugs will be shipped on Mondays & Tuesdays* If you are ordering Seeds and/or tools with your plugs, please note that they will all ship out together the following Monday or Tuesday with your plugs.
Hoss will conduct a full assessment of plants before they are shipped to ensure healthy plants are shipped to you. We recommend transplanting your plugs the same day you receive them or the next day. It is the customer's responsibility to assess their own weather conditions and planting times prior to ordering, please do not order if it's too early. If plants, upon arrival, are found to be in questionable health, please email pictures to Customer Support at email@example.com within 24 hours of receiving your order and we will promptly review your concerns and submission. If your plants are not watered or planted in a timely manner, they may not survive.
