Pimiento de Padron

(Capsicum annuum)

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 fromt 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 would like to try it yourself please contact us for seeds, plants (March-August) and fresh chiles (September).

We also grow the Bhut Jolokia, Naga Morich, Chocolate Habanero and many other Hot Chile Pepper plant varieties!
