Shishito Japanese Pepper - Heirloom 15 seeds


Small, mild Japanese pepper for roasting, pan-frying and grilling.
Thin walls blister and char easily when roasted or grilled, taking on rich flavor that is delicious with coarse salt and lemon juice. Pepper lore has it that the occasional fruit will display heat. Typically harvested 2"-4" mild fruits and used green, but eventually turns orange and red with sweeter flavor. Prolific!

60 days green

Grown in Tennessee.

Great service. Arrived in a cute little bag. Excited to get these planted. Thank you

great service! I'm excited to grow these peppers 🌶

The instructions are unsurpassed, but I am particularly impressed with the germination rate. I have seen growth after 6 days under a white light. I've purchased nearly everything this seller has to offer and will continue to shop her. I highly recommend this shop.

The cutest packaging and super fast delivery! Thank you!
