90 days. It’s believed to be a cross between the Shishito pepper and Fushimi area’s local spicy pepper. Farmers in Nara produced this for years to eat at home and say the straighter peppers taste better. Pick before they get too fat, and fry like green beans for slightly spicy, rich green pepper taste. This is a traditional cultural vegetable of the Nara prefecture. In the Nara region you can find these peppers sauteed in sea salt or featured in tradtional ohitashi. These 4-6 inch long, pencil thin peppers hang on the plant like pieces of string (himo means string in Japanese). Bring a piece of Japan’s culinary history to your garden and dinner table!

What are the pros? Tons of fruit

What are the cons? Slightly bitter, bland flavor

Review:

Each plant produced maybe 50 pods over the season. They had the abundant productivity that I think of cayenne as having (their similar appearance makes me assume they are closely related). Plants grew to 2-3 feet high by 1.5-2 ft across. Germination rates were very high and quick (compared to other pepper seeds). While I didn't enjoy the flavor very much, a friend that I gave extra seedlings to sauteed them up with salt and said his kids loved them. Some of the pods had a jalapeno level heat, others had no heat.

Review:

These are marvelous peppers. If you like shishito peppers, you will probably love Himo Togorashi! They have a slightly less bland, slightly more bitter flavor than shishito, and are thinner walled. I have grown these in containers in Brooklyn for two years. They are slower to start than other similar peppers, but are incredibly productive and healthy. We eat them raw and sauteed and salted, and mostly eat them at the green stage. I highly recommend them!
