This trendy little pepper is an heirloom food tradition in its hometown of Padron, Spain. Young peppers just 1½ inches long are sautéed in olive oil, sprinkled with sea salt, and eaten whole, seeds and stems and all. At this small size they are mostly mild, but an occasional pepper will pack quite a load of heat – leading one food writer to dub them “Spanish roulette.” Heat intensifies as they ripen.
Culture: Seeds germinate at 80 degrees, and young plants are very frost-sensitive, so start indoors in March or April for best results.
Approx. 60 seeds per packet
Grown in Potter Valley, California

Much better germination rate than the Padron seeds I got from Spain. Nice packaging too. Thanks.

The positive review is because of the quick and easy process with ordering and then having a timely and informative email exchange with Gina, the owner of the business. The seeds won’t be planted until warmer weather arrives

I just got my first 10 peppers from my plant and was surprised to find out that these are highly hot peppers. We could not eat them. These are not regular padron peppers. The peppers I got from my plant were bigger than padron peppers. In addition, only 1 or 2 in 100 padron perppers are hot. The ones from my plant are all hot peppers. So disappointed that these are not the peppers I thought I was buying.
