Pimiento De Padron Pepper

These small-fruited peppers originated in Galicia, northwest Spain, where the bite-sized green fruits are sauteed in olive oil and served with coarse-ground sea salt in tapas bars across the country. Most of the peppers are relatively mild, but an occasional unpredictable hot one led a New York Times writer to call eating the dish a game of "Spanish Roulette!" Also fine for pickled peppers; the heat increases as they ripen to red. An authentic regional variety.

What are the pros? big plants, cute shape

What are the cons? too hot and not productive

Review:

My husband is addicted to Shishito and other other small frying peppers. He eats them almost everyday and we freeze tons of them so we can enjoy them year round. The Padron pepper plants got huge, larger than any other peppers that we grew. To begin with the peppers were very mild and not hot at all. I liked them a lot. But then they all got way too hot for me, and even for my husband who likes more heat than I do. I picked the peppers when they were small, green, and young, but they were still wicked hot. Plus the plants weren't producing as many peppers, as the plants of other varieties. We ended up pulling up the plants to give other peppers more light and room. Fushimi is my favorite small frying pepper, but it hasn't become as popular as Shishito or Padron.

What are the pros? Hot and Early

What are the cons? All hot

Review:

Was very excited to see how many of the first harvest were hot. Picked a mini-peck of about 2" peppers and fed them to a group. They were too hot for most of us. All of them. Those who could handle the heat loved them! This was the first pepper that ripened in the garden and the most prolific. Two plants and we had too many! The later harvests were less hot. It was a very hot, dry summer and I was careful not to over-water. The milder pepper coincided with a rainy September. I will grow these again, if only to share with my hot pepper loving friends, family and neighbors.

What are the pros? amazing taste

Review:

My son suggested that I add these to the garden after he had them in Spain. I grew three plants from seed without any difficulty. They have been very prolific and have an amazing taste! As others have mentioned, pick them when they are under 3 inches or they will all be very hot. We learned the hard way! I will definitely have these in my garden every year from now on.

Review:

I wanted to grow these peppers as I was nostalgic for Spain. I had no idea what to expect. My peppers got off to a rough start in flats but these little guys survived some temperature and humidity extremes when they were neglected by our housesitter in April. Three survived and were planted out in May. It was a warm, dry summer for us here in the Northeast. They are currently over 5' high and still productive into mid-October. I will throw some season extension over them before we get a frost and see if we can get a few more. We harvested these every few days at 2-3" and fried in olive oil, then topped with a sprinkle of sea salt and ate as a pintxo. Just like I remember in Spain. only occasionally got a hot one. They tended to get hot when they got to be more than 3" long. Saving seed to grow again!

What are the pros? High yield, great flavor

What are the cons? Wish I could grow year round!

Review:

This is my third time growing these - the first year the plants didn't get as much sun so we only got a few peppers. The second year, a bird somehow got into our basement, ate all my pepper seedlings, and died. No harvest that year. This year - full sun on our deck, no bird issues, and despite a cool start to the summer the plants are massive (3' tall). I'm getting tons of huge peppers - some up to 4" long. They do get a considerable amount of sun and heat so most of them are pretty zippy if not downright hot (and I love hot food). So very pleased with this year's crop - will grow again and again.
