Shishito-(Capsicum annuum)-These are the Japanese equivalent to the Spanish Pimiento de Padron. The difference is the Shishito pepper is sweeter! Peppers are usually finger length from 2-4 inches long. The method to prepare is to pierce with fork and grill or fry in olive oil. Lightly salt and eat! Called Shishito because the head of the pepper sometimes resembles a lions head. Sometimes a little lemon or lime is squeezed over them or even a dash of soy sauce. Another way to prepare is to deep fry in a Tempura batter. Like the Padron one in every ten peppers may have some noticeable heat. The Shishito chile pepper plants can grow to almost three feet tall and are very productive. Peppers are best eaten green before they ripen to dark red.

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.
