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:

Last year was my first shishito experiment, and I treated them pretty shabbily - I started the seeds too late, I left them in tiny pots for too long, and then I planted six into one 3-gallon pot in an area that didn't get as much sun as a pepper needs. Despite these setbacks, they gave me 100% germination and grew into short, stocky little plants that produced nonstop by the handful until the frost finally killed the plant. They are delicious, tangy little peppers with none of the "grassy" note I dislike in many sweet peppers. One in ten will be fiery, but the rest are about in line with a mild poblano. Pick them when they're as fat as a man's thumb or about the size of a large okra pod. All you have to do is char them on your burner for thirty seconds and then toss with a little bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper, or put them on the grill whenever it's fired up. The only issue I had was some fruit distortion from sap-sucking insects, but some Neem oil kept it under control. Love them!

3-4 in., crinkled, sweet and fruity when green, mildly spicy when ripe (red), productive, space-saver, easiest to grow - along with sweet banana - in zone 5/6!

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.

What are the pros? Flavour, earliness, abundance

What are the cons? None

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.
