Pepperoncini Hot Pepper
This Milanese strain of an old Greek variety is unparalleled for purity and productivity. Large yields of thin 2 - 4” long, lime-green fruits stay sweet until late maturity. Harvest when green for fresh eating or for the legendary canned/pickled peppers used in pizzas, salads and sandwiches.
Plant is excellent in cold climates with short seasons.
Indigenous to Central and South America, peppers were developed into a crop plant around 3,000 BC or perhaps even earlier. Columbus introduced Capsicum into Europe and it also spread to Africa and Asia.
Peppers are used fresh, dried, and cooked. Peppers contain vitamins A and C.
