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.

Review:

We love these peppers!!!! In fact, I have been telling everyone I meet about these peppers, and carry a photo of them on my phone. They were so easy to grow, and so prolific. We had one little plant and were able to fully strip it of peppers at least six times last summer. Make sure you pick them when they are small though, or the "Spanish Roulette" becomes just a full plate of really spicy peppers. The longer they get, the hotter they get! We saute these in oil and salt with coarse ground sea salt, then eat tapas style, much like everyone else. Last year we only had one plant, this year we plan on making room for at least four. Seriously, even if you don't like eating peppers - try these. I was not a fan of eating plain peppers until we tried these, and now I can't wait for summer to harvest these again!

Review:

We grow 32 different varieties of peppers. This is, by far, our favorite. We put a little or a lot in almost everything we cook. We prefer it fresh, but dry some for the out of season months. These plants overwintered inside this year so we had fresh peppers until February. So now we already have a head start on the season because the plants are large. Started even more from seed now that we obsess over having enough.

Review:

I grew these peppers here in Northern California and was delighted with the results. Took them a while to come up, pots and in the garden, both did super well. Planting them again this year. we just throw them in a bag in the freezer and then cook them in the olive oil hot skillet and put sea salt on them whenever we like. LOVE IT

Review:

I have had these peppers in Spain, had them from US producers and grown them myself. The milder and more consistent the environs, the milder and more consistent the pepper. A smokey,green, complex taste with only an occasional hot one. Anything that stresses them makes them more hot. Pick them young. Hot climes bring on the heat so pick them young. Dryness makes them hot so pick the young, and keep them slightly damp in well drained soil.

Review:

I was so thrilled to get these seeds from your Petaluma Seed Bank location last spring. We have grown these in the past from seed packets we took home from Spain as an experiment 9 years ago. In Santa Barbara we are currently enjoying our crop at the end of October and will have tapas to enjoy through Thanksgiving. About one in five seem to be hot. What a treat to share as a tapa with family and friends. Thank you for carrying the seeds!
