Chef's Pepper Garden


If you are a chef, cook, or a gourmet gardener, make sure to check out our latest 3-pack of the best pepper seeds for your garden! These three special peppers have long been prized by restaurants and is a favorite among chefs.


Padron peppers are delicious heirloom peppers that are mostly mild, with an occasional spicy one mixed in. Padron peppers are great to fry up with sesame oil over high heat to blister and soften them, then sprinkle with salt and then serve immediately. 


Pepperoncini peppers are often pickled by chefs, but they can also be used fresh in salads or sandwiches, they can also be stuffed, or chopped and added to stews and soups. 


Paprika Peppers are gorgeous in red, and fresh Paprika goes well with just about anything – steamed vegetables, meat or fish, soups, stews, rice, creamy sauces, you name it. Fresh Paprika is hard to find, so growing it in your garden is a wonderful way to be able to pick and use fresh Paprika all summer long. You can also dry these peppers and crush into powder for year-round use in recipes.
