Pepperoncini Golden Greek - This is the Greek pepper most commonly found pickled and in salad bars or sandwich shops. It is also much sweeter than the Italian variety. It is similar to the sweet banana because both peppers are slightly sweet and tangy, but the pepperoncini brings a little bit of heat. Also thinner walls make it a better for pickling. It is also known as the Friggitello pepper, Sweet Italian pepper, or Tuscan pepper. In the United States they are called "pepperoncini", and they are quite distinct from Italian pepperoncini, which are hot Italian chili peppers.
These crisp golden peppers, with just a hint of heat, grow on productive 4’ plants. The thin skinned 3”- 4” peppers have superb flavor. They will ripen to red, but have the best flavor at the green stage. Capsicum annuum (75 days) Heirloom - Open-pollinated
