Friarielli pepper, also known as friarelli or friggitello pepper, is a type of sweet pepper commonly used in Italian cuisine. These peppers are small to medium in size, usually about 2-4 inches long, and have a mild, sweet flavor with just a hint of heat. They are often used in dishes such as sautés, stir-fries, and salads, and are particularly popular for frying due to their thin walls and tender texture. Friarielli peppers are typically green when immature and turn red as they ripen, but they can be harvested and used at any stage of maturity. They are a versatile ingredient and add a delicious flavor to a variety of dishes.

Sowing and Growing Guide

Friarelli Pepper

Indoor Sowing

  • Start seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before the last expected frost date in your area.
  • Fill seed trays with seed starting mix and sow seeds 1/4 inch deep.
  • Keep the soil consistently moist and at a temperature of around 70-80°F for optimal germination.
  • Once seedlings have developed their first true leaves, transplant them into individual pots, allowing sufficient space for root growth.
  • Continue to provide adequate light, water, and warmth as the seedlings grow.
  • Harden off seedlings gradually before transplanting them outdoors.

Outdoor Sowing

  • Transplant seedlings outdoors after the last frost date when the soil has warmed up and all danger of frost has passed.
  • Choose a sunny location with well-draining soil enriched with organic matter.
  • Space the plants 18-24 inches apart in rows spaced 24-36 inches apart.
  • Water the transplants immediately after planting and regularly thereafter to keep the soil evenly moist.
  • Apply a layer of mulch around the plants to help retain soil moisture and suppress weed growth.
  • Consider using support structures such as stakes or cages to support the plants as they grow.


  • Friarelli peppers prefer full sun and consistently moist, well-drained soil.
  • Water the plants regularly, especially during dry periods, but avoid overwatering, which can lead to disease problems.
  • Fertilize the plants with a balanced fertilizer every 4-6 weeks throughout the growing season.
  • Monitor the plants for pests and diseases, such as aphids, flea beetles, and fungal infections, and take appropriate measures to control them.
  • Harvest the peppers when they reach the desired size and color, typically when they are green or yellow and about 4-6 inches long.
  • Use scissors or pruning shears to cut the peppers from the plants, taking care not to damage the stems.
  • Store harvested peppers in the refrigerator for up to a week or preserve them by freezing, drying, or pickling.
