Matures in 70 Days

The light green pickled version of this variety are found in many salad bars, sub sandwich shops and pizza parlors. Produces short pendulous yellow-green peppers that are more pungent and spicier than the Greek pepperoncini.

SOWING…Start seed indoors, 6 to 8 weeks before danger of frost is past. Plant seed 1 inch apart and cover with ¼ inch of fine soil, well pressed down. Cover seed starting tray with plastic wrap or newspaper to conserve moisture and place in a warm spot (both night and day). After seeds sprout, place in a warm sunny window.

THINNING…When plants are 2 to 3 inches tall, transplant 2 inches apart in another tray. After danger of frost is past, transplant outdoors in a sunny location in rows 2 to 3 feet apart spacing plants 18 to 24 inches apart in the row.

GERMINATION…Germinates in 12 to 21 days depending on soil and temperature conditions. Cool temperatures delay germination.

REMARKS…Hold off heavy fertilization until the first blossom produces a small fruit which is picked off. Pepperoncini plants produce more and better tasting fruit if kept picked and not allowed to ripen. Cut instead of pulling from plant to avoid injury.
