This year I was hoping to plant some pepperoncinis (Tuscan) peppers. The hot variety. I cannot find them. I've been to plant centres, Tregunno seeds, who even looked up in their data base Stokes etc., googled, and could not find any.
I'm in Ontario, near St. Catharines so I'm looking for a Canadian source. Any help would be appreciated.

"AFAIKT, This pepper is made hot by pickling it"
You can not make a pepper hot simply by pickling it. What's HOT to some may not be to others.

Greek Pepperoncini is considered the most pungent and popular of this variety, used extensively in salads or at salad bars.
Early this year, someone from this forum sent me an e-mail requesting Greek Pepperoncini seeds. I sent the person the remainder of a packet I purchased from TGS.
After growing them last year, eating them fresh and pickled, the heat was moderate at best and didn't satisfy my palate.

I got some a few years ago from either Nichol's Garden Nursery or Territorial Seed(both in US).

Go to the site mentioned.

This statement is included "Pickling recipe included."

And on the package of seeds pictured

"The Essential Pickled Pepper in Greek Salads ++++"

Something doesn't add up???

RE: Pepperoncini Availability
