Pimientos de Padrón
500 – 2500 SHU
The Padron is quite obviously from Spain. Nearly everyone will know the name. It may well be the most well known pepper in the Mediterranean area. These are used all the time in Tapas and while not usually all that hot, for some reason there can be one that will light your fire! They are usually picked and eaten green, unlike our picture! They are probably one of the World’s best “frying peppers”. If you have not tried these sautéed in olive oil and salt, you are really missing out. Once the Padron passes your lips you will be hooked. It is a ‘must grow’ for us and hopefully you too.
