Ok... I have been searching for this pepper for years.  I have found it in jars, as spreads, on pizzas, but I cannot find anything on the topic of what kind they are!  I've tried to grow them from dried peppers to no avail.  I've tried contacting TuttoCalabria and other Companies whom make the pickles and all they can tell me is that they are "100% Italian and come from Calabria".  

 

Please help me identify what type of peppers these are and where I can get seeds.

 

Thanks!!!

In one of the pictures with the sale price:

 

Italian Chili Pepper 'Peperoncino Rosso' (Capsicum annuum).

 

Seeds:

Now order some seeds and start growing them.

Nice little pepper.

I will have to look into those myself...might have to try them in my pickling brine.

I have eaten plenty of those green pickled ones, they are great on top of pizza. They dont have much heat at all, but the taste is really good and that is all that matters in the end. This chili seems to be really old too(400-500 years old by now in Europe), so it must be pretty popular chili if it is still cultivated today.

Great find, that is the one he wanted to find/grow and seeds for that chili:

These are Peperoncino Rosso, based on the info i found:

There seems to be at least two different chilis in the pictures above and both are very worthy to grow.

Problem is, "peperoncino" is not really a variety. It just means "hot pepper" in Italian. And "rosso" just means "red".

On this website, they describe five varieties of hot peppers from Calabria.
​I think the one you're looking for is "Naso di cane" (which means "Dog nose").

I found several mentions of Italian/Italy chili from Semillas la palma:

https://www.semillas...nuum&cart_id=""

 

That Naso di Cane is also there.

 

Just use the "Italian or Italy" word to search the page.

 

I think the answer to this particular problem is to order every Italian chili we have found for you, as they all must be very good tasting ones and easy to grow too.

I don't think they are the "Dog Nose" or the "Peperoncino Rosso" as these are a medium spiced pepper.  Maybe 20,000-50,000 SHO.  They are definitely not sweet and not CRAZY spicy.   They have a unique flavor that is very addicting. 

 

I ordered some Calabrese Mazetti seeds and sourced some Etna, calabrese a mazzi, and diavolicchio seeds from Italy. 

 

We shall see what happens this season.

 

Any other ideas would be much appreciated!

Yes, start growing them in a coco medium with some perlite mixed in and use some good hydroponic fertilizers to get some great harvest in the end for your troubles.

Whatever are in those jars up there are one if not my favorite pepper.   If you can ever get you hands on a jar of them I highly recommend it.   Those and my other search for Dalle Kursani seeds!  I will never stop until I find them!

It just might be that your search is finally over for the Dalle Khursani seeds:

I ordered some! 

 

Now I just need to figure out if I can grow them :)   Any idea if they are similar to a regular habenero in terms of growing??

All of those seems to be c.annuum so they should be way easier and are way faster at growing. If you know how to grow c.chinense, you dont have any problems with those chilis either as similar growing method will work.

Thanks Queen!  I sourced some of those seeds from a person in Italy.   I hope to try an oil pickle with all the different peppers and see which one tastes the most similar.
