Shishito Pepper

A favorite old Japanese variety which produces 3” long, slightly wrinkled fruits that is perfect for making tempura and other traditional recipes. Fruit is emerald green in color, ripening to red, and mildly flavored with just a bit of spice. It really is superb and is the standard with many chefs.

Review:

Very successful pepper in my relatively short growing season. Tons of fruit per plant, I take some to work every week. Peppers are very good seared in a cast iron pan with some ghee, salt, and pepper. Stake plants, get them plenty of sun.

What are the cons? wish i found sooner

Review:

I love colored bell peppers but just cant seem to grow them at all. If I get any at all they are very small and it is hard to get them to ripen properly. These peppers were the only ones i got to grow at all this year and they are very prolific! The taste is mildly sweet and not hot at all. It is the perfect replacement for what i cant seem to grow myself. It will be in my garden every year now and get a larger spot in the garden. I plan to try pickling, dehydrating, and freezing these to use all year. By the way, you do not have to wait until they turn red. They taste wonderful green as well!

Review:

I grew these from transplants last year, and they were by far the most prolific item in my ENTIRE garden! 4 plants produced more peppers than we could eat or give away. We had an unexpected late frost after I planted 2 of them, and I thought they were surely done for as they had blackened. As it turns out, those two plants ended up being nearly double the size of the others - I would pick a basket full of peppers every few days. We enjoy them by blistering and charring in some oil and sprinkling with salt.

Review:

I love these peppers! Fried with olive oil and a dash of sea salt. Great snack for guests. Don't be surprised if one in ten to twenty is hot. To me it's a fun surprise. Served with cream cheese on a nice cracker and you'll be loving them as well. Great fresh too. Prolific producer.

Review:

I started these indoors in late June (late in the season, I know) and put TWO plants outdoors in August. I think I used 2 gallon pots, but they might have been 3. I staked the stem with a bamboo stake to protect it from wind. These grew quick, though the plant is supposed to be smaller than normal pepper plants. They flowered beautifully and I got about 3 dozen full size green peppers and about 2 dozen more small peppers before first frost in mid-October. I ate all of them before they turned red. Didn't experience any of the legendary spicy peppers in my mix, but I got 1 pepper that had a subtle bite to it. Overall these were super easy, and I will try them again next year when I will have a chance to start earlier in the season.
