Details

Named after the town where they originated. Gourmet gardeners will love these hard-to-find, authentic Spanish Padron peppers, a prized specialty direct from the Galicia region of Spain. Picked small, then quickly sizzled in fruity olive oil, Padron peppers are among the most delicious traditional “Tapas” appetizers in Spain. Once you taste these savory little mouthfuls, you are guaranteed to want more! The tapered fruits grow abundantly on vigorous plants that bear both early and for an extremely long season.

Harvest Padron peppers when they are 1-1 1/2" long. About 1 out of 20 fruits will be hot, and the rest mild. All the fruits become hot if allowed to grow 2-3" long.

SHU: 500 - 2,500
