Welcome!

They usually grow down. I say 'usually' because our plants strive constantly to confuse and surprise us.

Are all the peppers growing up? Or just one or two? Are you sure its a Banana pepper?

Maybe a photo would help.

Welcome to NGA, panire123.

Banana peppers usually grow in a downward fashion, but I don't see any reason why it would harm the plant for them to grow pointing upward; actually, I'd love to find a variety that does that! Smiling

Why are you so positive the plant is a Banana pepper? The plant is fine - it doesn't matter which way the peppers grow.

I am not aware of any variety of Banana Peppers that grow upwards. I think you might have a mis labeled plant and it might be even a hot pepper.

Well... there are hot banana peppers... but the ones I'm familiar with do normally grow downward.

Sounds like you either answered your own question or do not like the answers we have provided thus far.

If you received your seeds from an independent gardener and not a professional, the banana peppers may not have been isolated far enough and may have crossed with some other type of pepper - no telling what you have then.

Good luck and I sure wish you would be kind enough to share photos. Thank You!
