Fushimi Sweet Pepper Seeds
Fushimi Pepper Seeds – This traditional Japanese sweet pepper is delicious when eaten right off the plant! It has crispier skin and texture than its companion the Shishito pepper. The thin walls and bright green color make it very popular and widely used in Asian cooking, especially in tempura. These are generally picked and used when they are green, but you can also let them ripen more to a nice red color.
Fushimi Peppers can be harvested earlier than most other peppers, and are very prolific the entire season, so you'll be harvesting them all summer. You can cook these up with a little sesame oil and salt in a hot frying pan, they are also great when grilled or pickled!
Fushimi pepper plants produce a heavy crop of long 6" narrow pods. Plants are 24" tall and great for container gardens. Easy to grow in full sun and fertile soil. Capsicum annuum (80 days) Heirloom - Open-pollinated
Heat level: None
~ Packet contains 10 seeds.
In early spring, start seeds indoors 8 weeks prior to warm nightly temperatures. Place the seeds in sterile media and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, bright light and keep moist at all times. Seeds will germinate in 7 - 14 days. Transplant seedlings into pots and grow until there are 6 true leaves on the plant. Plant them directly into rich soil, 24” apart or into large containers. Harvest peppers when they are full size.
All of our seeds are GMO-free.
I am a volunteer grower for a nonprofit and last year we added Fushimi peppers to our Spring Plant Sale offerings. Here in Northern Colorado, zone 5, these lovely, no heat peppers grew like champs. Extremely prolific, each plant provided us with an abundant harvest every few days over the span of several months. We used them mostly as a tapas style dish, blistering them in a cast iron skillet with olive oil and sea salt, and topped with feta cheese. If you like Shishito peppers, you will like these as well.
We love these thin-walled and glossy bright green Japanese peppers! Very prolific, and tasty, too. We had great success with your seeds, nearly every one sprouted. Thank you.
Here in southern California, in zone 9B, it's not hard to grow good peppers. However, these little guys have been producing like crazy! Hardy plants that germinated and transplanted really well and have exceeded my expectations. Will have these in the garden again for sure! Thanks.
