65 days. Open pollinated. Productive over a long season. Pimientos de Padrón are harvested as a small ( 2 1/2″ x 1 1/4″), green, mild pepper that originate from the Padrón region of Galicia in North-western Spain. I say “mild”, but every now and then you bite into one with some HEAT, and it surprises you. Sort of a Russian Roulette pepper, and lots of fun. Traditionally grilled or fried in olive oil until the skins blister, tossed with flaky sea salt, then served as Tapas (appetizers, usually served with beer.) Or, stuff with cheese and then blister them. Usually picked green, but you can let them turn red if you want some sweetness and more heat. Pick them young and small if you want them to be mild. Also excellent for pickling.

We will send an email from our farm (firstname.lastname@example.org) within 24 hours of receiving your order informing you of your shipping date. You are welcome to change the shipping date. Just let us know when you want them.
Our plants are sustainably raised. We use only organic soil, fertilizers and sprays if needed. We have been growing and selling plants since 1997.
Our plants are shipped in individual 3″ deep pots. They are ready to be planted out in your garden.
We package our plants with extreme care so they arrive undamaged at your doorstep. Each plant is tucked into its own padded sleeve. The soil in each pot is covered so it will not spill out. A plant tag identifying the variety is included with each plant.
