Are these peppers hot, medium or mild, like banana peppers?

Hi! I need advice on how many Peperone Di Cuneo seeds do I place in one pot to grow one plant? Thanks!!
Susana P on Feb 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It's standard to put 2 or 3 seeds in each seedling pot in case one of the seeds doesn't germinate. If more than one seed sprouts, wait a week or so then take a pair of scissor and snip off all but the strongest sprout at the soil level. Don't pull the others out or you will risk destroying the strong one.

Best sweet peppers to grow
These are the best tasting sweet peppers, far better than bells, and they can crank out quickly. Grow them in a black pot unless you live in the tropics and grow them as a perennial plant in a hot area (not too hot not above 95 F unless you want fruiting to shut down) and you will have these year round. Much better flavor than bells and sweet and thick: great for sandwiches and salads.
