Shishito Pepper

A favorite old Japanese variety which produces 3-inch long, slightly wrinkled fruit that are perfect for making tempura and other traditional recipes. Fruit is emerald green color, mildly flavored with a just bit of spice; it really is superb. It is the standard with many chefs.

Review:

These are wonderful. We enjoy them blistered in olive oil or grilled with just a little sea salt and cannot get enough. 2 plants in the ground kept us in peppers all summer in Florida in our marginal soil. Great variety, hardy and productive. We grow these every season now.

Review:

I have to grow my entire garden in containers, because I live in a city with PCB pollution. Shishito was amazing in my garden. Three plants in a well-maintained container produced hundreds of peppers for me over the course of the summer--well over the two pounds that other growers have listed. The peppers were nice sized and produced larger fruits over the course of the season. Shishito has a permanent home in my garden. And I second blistering them in olive oil and sprinkling with salt. It's a true summer garden treat. I'm already craving them.

Review:

I love this pepper! They have great flavor, especially blistered in olive oil and then sprinkled with salt. I couldn't get enough of these and wish I'd planted more, which is the plan for this summer. I tried growing in my shady raised bed garden and in a pot in a more sunny area. The plant in the pot grew taller and produced more, though they both produced dozens of small peppers. In the middle of the summer they seemed to slow down but then picked up again and produced well through the fall.

Review:

Exceptional plant. This pepper grows best in the ground. I found when I potted it stayed under 3 feet tall the the peppers were somewhat small. All the plants that were planted in the ground were over 3 feet tall, all of which had high productivity. This pepper made way more than I could consume in the season.In the ground: 6 plants made 8+ lbs of fruitIn pots: 6 plants made less than 2lbs of fruit
