Padron Hot Pepper

3880 - Padron. The Pimiento de Padron Pepper is an old chile from Padron in Northwestern Spain. Traditionally used for delicious snacks or "tapas" when young. Picked when the chiles are about the diameter of an olive, the pods are fried whole in olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt. One in every few is spicy, so you never know when you'll get a surprise ("Spanish Roulette"). Make sure to pick them small, as larger, more mature peppers are always hot. Superb on sandwiches, as salad toppings, or to perk up other vegetables. 55-85 days.

Safe Seed Pledge

Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative. We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds.
