 Italian Pepperoncini Pepper Seeds (75 days)

 

This great pepper has been highly prized in Tuscany for years. 

Italian Pepperoncini Pepper is an Italian heirloom that produces a 3-5" pepper with just a touch of heat. 

Bushy, small plants provide excellent sun-scald protection and tons of sweet fruit. 

 Italian Pepperoncini Peppers are yellow and then turn to red as the sweet flavor intensifies. 

Excellent pickled or raw. 

From one of our customers (sent in October - still getting peppers!):

The Italian Pepperoncini peppers turned out great. I grew them in East Point, GA (Atlanta) in large potting soil pots. They did very well, and I am still getting new peppers, so hopefully I can squeak out one more batch of canned pepperoncinis. I found a good recipe and they turned out great. Here is the basic recipe:

4c plain vinegar

4c water

8 Tablespoons canning salt

1/8 tsp alum (per pint jar)

2 bay leaves

2 garlic cloves

4 sprigs of fresh thyme

4 springs of fresh oregano

Rinse the peppers in a water bath. Poke a few holes in each pepper with a small fork to allow juice to get inside peppers. Boil water and vinegar and canning salt together. Sterilize jars and canning lids in boiling water bath, remove jars. Add alum, bay leaves, garlic, thyme and oregano. Then stuff jars with pepperoncinis. Remove lids from water. Using a funnel, carefully pour boiling vinegar/water mix into the jars to top of jar (the level of water in the jar will adjust as it seeps into the peppers). Immediately put lid on and tighten ring. Once the jars cool, store in a refrigerator. They should be edible in about 6 wks.

These Italian Pepperoncini Pepper made with this recipe are awesome, and I think they are even better than the pepperoncinis I buy in the grocery store.

Planting Tips for Heirloom Sweat Peppers:

Start these vegetable seeds indoors about 6-8 weekds before your last frost date.  Be sure to keep them in a warm place so that the soil temperature stays above 75°.  Young heirloom pepper plants like it to stay warm and will develope well if kept happy.

Only transplanted after the heirloom pepper seedlings have shown several sets of their true leaves and only once you are sure the outside soil temperature is consistently above 65°. 

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
