Shishito Pepper

A favorite old Japanese variety which produces 3” long, slightly wrinkled fruits that are 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.

What are the pros? Productive, easy to grow

What are the cons? needs support

Review:

Last year was my first for these little guys. I started indoors about 8 weeks before last frost. Great germination with heat mat, organic seed starting mix. Under grow lights until transplanting. These peppers were crowded in a corner and took the backseat to the bells. The plants ended up getting big enough that they needed some support from ALL of the peppers growing on them. Best way to cook for me is a bit of oil and salt on them and then blister on the grill. The hubs likes them green best, I like them red. Every once and awhile we would find one with a bit of heat. After a hot dry period we found that ALL of the red ones became quite hot. Some hot like a jalapeno, others like hot death. Some of those we dried and crushed to make red pepper flakes. When the danger of frost was imminent, they were dug up and put into gallon pots to bring in for the winter. I couldn't bear to see them die. Those are now outside with flowers ready to go!

What are the pros? Superb Flavor, Huge Yields

What are the cons? Slow Maturity, Aphids

Review:

These were very tasty peppers. The fruits stayed green and unripe for around 2 months - they're unpleasant to eat raw while green (unsweet, slightly bitter). suffice it to say, the wait was worth it. A bright sweet full peppery taste, excluding the random hot-ish ones. Good germination. Ran into aphids towards the end of the season. The plant itself is about a foot high and wide with a sturdy stem. Will be growing again. START EARLY. 2 week shipping to Canada

Review:

I've started them inside in February, they grew well and started producing in May before I transplanted them out, they produced well into the last weeks of fall and I had a bunch of small dry peppers. But that was the issue, apart from kids eating them of the plants I didn't know what to do with them, tempura doesn't work because they are full of seeds and you end up spitting them out even if I clean them, it's tedious btw...so I gathered a bunch and froze them whole, this turned out to be a good idea cause now I can add them to my stews, soups and sauces, and just take them out because they keep the shape when they cook, still happy with them :)

Review:

I grew these in raised beds during our winter/spring/early summer (zone 11a). Had good germination and yield. Aphids weren't much of an issue unless the ants were farming them, nothing neem oil and diatomaceous earth couldn't resolve for the most part though. I believe these peppers could have surpassed a year in life had my chickens not snuck into the garden. I love thin skinned peppers so I'm partial. These also have a very subdued heat from the seeds that heightens the flavor profile. Great breakfast pepper. I highly recommend Shishito.

What are the pros? everything

What are the cons? late maturity

Review:

We love to cook and these have quickly become our favs. The flavor is fantastic with just the right amount of heat that isn't overbearing.Don't JUST blister and serve plain although you MUST do that the first time to enjoy...they are an added bonus to potatoes...fried potatoes especially! Add them into stir fries and salsas. They're just wonderful! I wish they started producing here earlier...just started in August but now are loaded with pepper!
