Sweet Pepper – Pepperoncini (Italian Heirloom)


Unique, narrow and elongated sweet pepper

Out of stock


Don’t be fooled, this is NOT a hot pepper! Pepperoncini is a unique, narrow and elongated sweet pepper that is great fresh, but perfect for both drying or bottling. Bushes are very generous; producing masses of light green peppers that ripen to a bright red.

Days to Maturity: 70

Suggestions: Peppers need a warm soil and night temperature to prosper. They will stunt under 10C. Location should be sheltered from the wind and soil should be kept reasonably moist. Be sure to harden off the seedlings to reduce transplant stress. Harvest fruit early and often. The more you pick the more they will produce. Do not pull off fruit, rather cut from stems.
Pot size: Minimum 12″ per plant or plant in ground 12″ away from next plant.
