The Pepperoncini Pepper was likely your first taste of a foreign word at a deli, subway shop, or pizza joint. Those bright yellow pickled rings added a smidge of sour and a surprise of spice. You weren’t sure you liked them at first, but kept eating them, and learned to pronounce it: pepper-on-CHI-ni. Bring back the memories with this prolific plant that produces bunchini 3"-5" fruits that are tangy and crunchini when yellowish-green, becoming softer and sweeter as they ripen to red. Pickle these sweet, mild peppers in the old way, or toss fresh with a bowl of fettucini, porcini, and pecorini.
