Peperoncini (or pepperoncini), a variety of Capsicum annuum, like bell peppers and chili peppers, are also known as Tuscan peppers, sweet Italian peppers and golden Greek peppers. In Italy these mild peppers are called friggitello (plural friggitelli) or generally peperone (plural peperoni) like other sweet varieties of peppers. Peperoncini are commonly pickled and sold packaged in jars.
