HOT PEPPER FAVE


Shishito

Green Non-Bell Pepper
60 days to green

I love this pepper because it's early, easy and abundant. With dozens of wrinkled 1x3½" fruits borne early on compact well-branched plants, these make good container plants. Typically harvested green to be roasted, fried or grilled whole.These are usually fairly mild in heat, but last year mine were pretty darn hot, so they do vary.
