Pimiento de Padron Peppers
Named after the town where they originated. Harvest Padron peppers when they are 1-1 1/2″ long. About 1 out of 20 fruits will be hot, and the rest mild.
All the fruits from this chile plant become hot if allowed to grow 2-3″ long. Or if they ripen to red. Padrons are served sautéed in olive oil with a little sea salt, and eaten as tapas (appetizer) in Spain. Great with a cold beer!
”At Refining Fire Chiles we isolate our seed production plants to avoid cross-pollination with other chile species. If you want to grow your own chiles, you can purchase seeds right here, or full plants (April-July) and have fresh chiles by September.Refining Fire ChilesJim (Habanero) Duffy
