Desperately Seeking....mild banana peppers

Anyone know where to buy them in the Bay Area (San Francisco, Oakland, Fremont, etc.)? Fresh or pickled.

Well now, I been to three Safeways, one Lucky, Whole Foods, Berkeley Bowl, and Piedmont Grocery. No luck anywhere. I think you are confusing banana peppers with peperoncini, as far as the jars go.

Peperoncini - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Banana pepper - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Is banana peppers the same as pepperonchini - Ask Community

...and for the fresh, I think you are confusing them with yellow wax peppers:

Hungarian wax pepper - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

...which are available at most produce counters. I have yet to find banana peppers (fresh or pickled) anywhere, and most who work at produce do not even seem to know what they are when I've asked.

Have you tried any Mexican grocery stores? I know there are many in your area. As to how mild----- I don't know.

Nope. I know what pepperocini is. And I know what banana peppers are.
Both are readily available in my area.

Fresh banana peppers are usually available in every grocery store I shop at. Right next to the red and green bell peppers. In the produce section.

Pickled banana peppers are available in every store I have walked into. Mount Olive and Vlasic are the two that come to mind.
You can also get banana pepper rings. Hot or mild.
Right next to the pickles.

It looks like you are in Cali? Seems you would have a much better ability than I have to get the peppers you want.

As an alternative, consider cubanelle peppers.

Have you tried any of the many Mexican groceries in your area?

I visited two(2) grocery stores this past couple days and thought about this thread.
I found fresh banana peppers at both stores. Produce section.
I found pickled jar banana peppers in one store. It was a Mexican brand. (ethnic food section)
In the other, I could only find banana pepper rings. Both hot or mild.

So they are widely available in my area. Widely available.
