Detailed Product Info

This pepper is seen in tapas bars in Spain, and perhaps now in your kitchen! Small, slightly blocky and wrinkled peppers are mild, for the most part. Occasionally, you come across a hot one but that is part of the fun! Pick early and often if you are afraid of the heat. The traditional preparation for these is pan fried in a olive oil until slightly charred and served sprinkled with coarse sea salt. Then, eat everything but the stem!

Growing Instructions

Sow indoors 8 weeks before last frost. Requires heat for germination, which can take 10-14 days. Transplant once weather has settled, usually 2 weeks after tomatoes have been transplanted (peppers will tolerate earlier transplanting but won't grow much). Plant in well-drained soil in full sun.
