One of the most popular peppers in the world, the Golden Greek Pepperoncini is a sweet and mild pepper that is commonly pickled. Although the peppers are easy to find in salad bars and sandwich shops, the seeds are somewhat rare. The Golden Greek Pepperoncini is much sweeter than the Italian variety and is often confused with the Banana pepper because both peppers are slightly sweet and tangy.
The peppers have thin walls and offer a slight kick, so they’re perfect for pickling. Golden Greek Pepperoncinis eventually ripen to red, but they’re most commonly harvested and pickled while they’re in the green stage.
