Also known as Golden Greek Pepperoncini, Friggitello pepper, Sweet Italian pepper, or Tuscan pepper, this is a strain from Greece that is somewhat rare and prized by those who want these peppers for pickling or processing. They originate from Italy and Greece, although the Pepperoncini Greek Golden pepper has been popular throughout the world.

The Pepperoncini Greek Golden pepper plant is a high-yielding, prolific plant that matures early, and you can expect to harvest these sweet, tangy peppers around 60 to 70 days. They ripen from green, yellow, to finally red, but they should be harvested when they turn yellow for their delicious flavors that many people favor. The peppers grow to around 4" long and are slightly wrinkled and slender with thin walls.

The peppers are smaller, lighter in color, and sweeter than the regular Pepperoncini, and comes in a heat level of 100-500 SHUs. They are identical to the banana pepper in terms of flavors, but this Pepperoncini brings a little more heat. They are great for sandwiches, pizzas, soups, sauces, garnishes, and to eat as pickled peppers. You may know these peppers as the perfect addition to the Greek salad! We highly recommend eating them when they are pickled. Get this fantastic Greek heirloom today!

  • 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.
