This heirloom variety from Greece is best known for being sweet, crunchy, and very mild. Golden Greek Pepperoncini Peppers are best harvested when they are yellow or golden; this is when they are the sweetest, yet with a mild kick. Golden Greek Pepperoncini Peppers are great for pickling, Greek salads, and salsas.
Golden Greek Pepperoncini Peppers are like regular Pepperoncini Peppers but smaller and lighter in color. These mildly hot peppers start out green, then yellow, and finally red when mature. Most gardeners grow these peppers to pickle and use in Greek salads.
