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:

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!

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.

Review:

I started the seeds inside and most germinated. I transplanted them in late April and we've already picked a few just to try them out and to promote more peppers.These pepper plants have out performed all of our pepper plants so far. We have had mid to upper 90s temps and high humidity for the last few weeks and each plant has at least 20 peppers and lots more blooms still coming. The plants are 4 feet tall, healthy, and my bees love em! We cooked them whole in a hot iron skillet, watched them dance, then put them in a bowl with olive oil and sea salt. They were mild but tasty but I didnt leave these on the vine long enough for heat, according to what I read, so maybe i will leave these on longer.

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.
