Product Details

Description

Padron chillies are best harvested when immature and still green, they will usually be around 2.5-4cm long.  Padrons are well known as a Spanish tapas dish, where they are cooked in olive oil for around 5 minutes until their skins start to blister and turn brown and wilted, remove from the pan to a plate and season them with Sea salt. Enjoy!

Plant Care Tips

Sow a few seeds into a tray in late January to May and cover lightly with seed compost.  Either use a heated propagator or pop the seed tray into an enclosed plastic bag and seal and place it on a windowsill.  Once the seedling has produced two true leaves (second set of leaves) they can be transplanted into individual pots.  Try and maintain around 20-25 degrees while young plants.

As the plant grows, transplant it into as large a pot as it allows, which will determine the plant's size.  Once the plant has flowered and has started to produce small chillies, it will benefit from a feed of either comfrey tea or tomato feed.  Chillies dislike irregular watering as this will sometimes cause blossom end rot (the base of the chilli/pepper rots)
