What are the pros? Flavor, producer, easy
What are the cons? Slow to get going
These are the bee's knees. I thought they were not going to make it after they germinated (sown directly into the garden bed at the usual time here in chile country), they just stayed the same size for weeks on end until the weather got warm enough to suit their needs, then BAM! Growth spurt and beautiful, compact, productive plants! It's November 11 and I just pulled them yesterday, as they finally stopped blossoming, although we've not had a frost yet. We picked GALLONS of little peppers and loved them grilled, pan-seared and roasted in the oven. I also pickled several batches to substitute for peperoncini. We will be growing them again next season, probably in large pots, as the plants are smallish, bushy, and attractive. We also grew padrones this year and far prefer the shishitos, as the padrones have a tendency to get too spicy.
