Italian Long Sweet peppers ‘Lombardo Pepperoncini’ are elongated, curved to straight pods, averaging 4-8 inch in length, and have a conical shape that tapers to a point on the non-stem end. The pods often appear twisted due to their length and prominent creases, and the skin is smooth, glossy, and waxy, ripening from green, yellow, to red when mature. Underneath the surface, the flesh is crisp and aqueous, encasing a narrow cavity filled with small white membranes and round and flat, cream-colored seeds. Fresh Italian Long Sweet peppers have a mild, sweet flavor with little to no spice, and when cooked, they develop a complex, smoky-sweet taste.
