The Italian Pepperoncini is a popular Italian heirloom pepper that has many different uses and can be enjoyed in many ways.

These compact pepper plants will razzle and dazzle in your garden, growing up to 2 ft. tall and producing plenty of these 3-6" long peppers. The plants are extremely bushy and give good sun protection to the pods. Not only that, they will perform well in cooler climates. Italian Pepperoncini peppers have that signature smooth, shiny texture and pendant shape that tapers off to a point, just like the Pepperoncini Greek Golden Pepper. These pods ripen from green to red when they are ready to be picked.

The heirloom pepper has a slight heat with a sweeter flavor that you'll fall in love with. If you are a pickled pepper person, this Italian pepper is the one for you! The Italian Pepperoncini goes great on anything and is great to eat raw and cooked too.

Getting Started

Our mission is to introduce you to a diverse array of pepper varieties, setting the stage for an exciting and rewarding gardening experience. Let's dive into the essentials together.

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
