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.

What are the pros? great crunchy snack

What are the cons? none

Review:

I go to japan often where they char grill shishito peppers and it's a super great snack. they don't look like these peppers. they're smooth skinned, not crinkled like these but the flavor of these are great. mild, crunchy, not to strong. i love snacking on them fresh from the garden. they were easy to grow and are nice plants about a foot high. a couple of the plants produced yellow, smooth (smaller jalapeno shaped) peppers. (looking more like the shishitos in japan), but the peppers are just as crunchy and tasty. most are mild but some of them are super hot. it's like winning the lottery or playing russian roulette, depending on the way you enjoy 'hot'. it's fun for us.

Review:

Plants produced heavy crops of 1-2 inch peppers. The longer the fruit stayed on the plant, the hotter they got. Even in our mild, wet winter they did well. I grilled mine whole, in a cast iron pan and finished them with mint, pistacio crumbs and yogurt.

Review:

I bought the plant at the end of the growing season last year. I did not expect it to grow over the winter. Instead it turned into a huge plant that screened a window. My only problem with the plant is that it occasionally produces an incredibly spicy pepper and there is no way to tell which ones will blister my mouth. Regardless, it produces lovely lavender blossoms, prolific foliage, and usually tasty fruit. It is a welcome addition to my garden.

Review:

I planted this the first time last year and I must have gotten over 100 shishitos off the single plant that I had. This year I have 5 plants and hoping for another successful year. My family enjoys eating these for an appetizer blistered in oil on the stove with a light dusting of lime salt. If I do well this year again will be planting these every year from now on.

Review:

With a seedling warmer mat and a simple l.e.d. grow light, I gave these seeds 8 solid weeks to grow before I could transplant them outside. I'm closing in on week 8 and these are the healthiest and strongest pepper plants I've ever grown. They were slow to germinate, but give them constant warmth and water, it is worth the wait. The stems are thick and stong, the leaves are dark lush green, and there are several flowers on each plant. One fruit is already the size of a dime. These babies want to grow if you give them what they need.
