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? Very prolific

What are the cons? None that I can think of.

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.

What are the pros? Healthy plants, fast growing

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.

What are the pros? N/A

What are the cons? won't sprout

Review:

Our area is not that good for starting peppers, so that's why I start them inside every year. I have grown many peppers before ( hot and sweet) but cannot get these seeds to germinate, not even one!

What are the pros? A serious producer

What are the cons? Slow to ripen

Review:

This is a great pepper: moderate heat, abundant production, and superb flavor. Seeds had a great germination rate (12/12), the plants took transplants well, and out-performed my other peppers (with the exception the Chinese 5 Color Pepper). It took a bit longer to ripen than I had hoped, but I'm also awful impatient when I see unripe fruit hanging on my plants... days can feel like months! However, once the peppers began to turn red, they turned in a hurry. The peppers are delicious green, don't get me wrong, and you could eat them as such if you should choose to. With as many peppers as it produces, you'll have plenty to experiment with, so don't be shy with them. And don't forget to save your (viable) seeds!

What are the pros? everything

What are the cons? nothing

Review:

I intend to grow these peppers every year. I started them inside and the plants were robust (not at all spindly) and immune to the endemic bugs in the house. In the garden they remained healthy, bushy and amazingly prolific. They continued to bear into November! Most importantly--they are delicious.
