PEPPERONCINIS

Pepperoncinis are sweet, mild chili peppers, usually sold pickled. Also known as Tuscan Peppers, sweet Italian peppers, or golden Greek peppers. Learn more about them.

Scoville Heat Units: 100-500 SHU

WHERE DO PEPPERONCINIS COME FROM?

The Pepperoncini originates from Italy and Greece, though it is commonly known as an Italian chili pepper. As it is a common pepper in those regions and beyond, it is known by many names. We call it the pepperoncini in the United States, though name variations are “peperoncini” (one less p in the spelling) or “peperone” by the Italians, which is a more generic name for a general pepper.

CHILI DE ARBOL

WHAT IS CHILI DE ARBOL?

Chiles de Árbol are small and thin Mexican peppers, growing to 2-3 inches long and less than a ½ inch wide. They mature to a bright, vibrant red, and are harvested and used at this stage. Chile de Árbol means “tree chili” in Spanish, a name which refers to the woody stem of the pepper. They have a naturally smokey earthy flavor and is a close cousin of the cayenne pepper.Other names for this pepper include Bird’s beak chile, and Rat’s tail chile.

These peppers may be sold fresh, dried or powdered. The dried whole chilies are often used to make chili pepper wreaths, or ristras, because when dried they keep their deep red color.

Here is a photo of the chile de arbol peppers freshly picked from my garden. You can see their bright red color, so vibrant. I’ve removed the stems for making some fresh salsa.
