Organic Shishito Pepper

$3.29

Shishito peppers are commonly found on menus as ‘blistered’ because the thin walls blister well to develop a distinct smoky flavor. This small Japanese pepper is ideal for pan-frying, roasting or tempura and performs well in almost any dish.

Plant Preferences:

Pepper plants need more phosphorus than other veggies and will benefit from being watered in with a high phosphorus solution when being transplanted.

Harvest:

Days to Maturity:

55 to 80 days with full sun
