Pimiento de Padrón seeds


These are generally small, perfectly conical chillies will grow up to 10cm long and are slightly crinkled, with a groove down the sides.  They mature from bright green to bright red, though are usually picked and cooked when dark green.


They are an easy chilli to grow and sow no later than early spring. The plants are large and bushy, growing up to 2m tall when grown in the ground, and will crop continually providing you keep picking.
