A welcome return for unassuming this small green pepper which is a Spanish culinary delight.  Traditionally they are pan fried in olive oil with a little sea salt and served with beer, alternatively add them to a stir fry and play Spanish roulette as every so often Padron will produce amongst its mild chillies a hot one that is indistinguishable until eaten! "Os pementos de Padrón, uns pican e outros non" (Galician for "Padrón peppers, some are hot and some are not").                                                              

Price for 10 seeds. 

 

SOW: from mid-April to end of May, indoors in a warm soil in trays or modules barely covering the seeds as they need light to germinate.

 

GROW: when they reach the 2/3 leaf stage they can be planted into a greenhouse or hardened off and put outside in a warm sheltered spot.  You can grow them in the soil, in a container or in a grow bag.       

 

EAT: traditionally is pan fried in olive oil with a little sea salt and served with beer, alternatively add them to a stir fry. "Os pementos de Padrón, uns pican e outros non" (Galician for "Padrón peppers, some are hot and some are not")
