Pepperoncini

Post  Uprooted on 5/27/2011, 9:37 am

Has anyone grown these? Are they good for anything besides pickling? I have one plant which has a pepper on it already (the first of my pepper/tomato/eggplant transplants to have any fruit).

I got it because I was looking for a not-too-hot pepper that wasn't a regular bell pepper. I did remember that it was the name of the little pickled yellow pepper that comes in Italian salads and pizza boxes. But when I googled it, after it was already planted, it seems that it is a bit on the bitter side and normally pickled.

Just wondering what anyone else's experience is. I will probably some in to recipes here and there just to experiment.

I grew my first plant last year but it was so cold in the PNW that I only got one pepper. It was great sliced thin and sprinkled on pizza.

Yep, home made pizza is where my pepperoncinis are going to go too. Though the ones I get in the pizza box are mildly spicy. Maybe it's what they pickle them in?

Mildly spicy is exactly what I was looking for, and I understand that that is a feature of the pepper and not just the pickling spices. I'm just hoping the "bitter" part I keep reading about is not too apparent! Let me know how yours grow this year. Smile
