Shishito - This Japanese heirloom sweet pepper is becoming very popular and in great demand at farmer's markets! It has great flavor and is easy to prepare! The pods of this early season sweet pepper are 3” - 4" long on very productive 24" tall plants. Easy to grow in full sun and fertile soil. Great for container gardening. Capsicum annuum (60 days) Open-pollinated - Heirloom - Non-GMO

Heat level: None*
*Although, every once in a while
a Shishito pepper will be spicy!

~ 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, 30” apart or into large containers. Harvest peppers when they are full size. Check out this easy & delicious Shishito Recipe »

Uh Oh

I planted them into a 10 gal pot on my balcony, they grew to an 1" tall and died. 3 times I've planted them and they each did the same.

So productive

My two plants grew to nearly three feet tall and kept producing pods from early summer all the way to fall. I'm going to grow these every year now. I grew mine in pots.

Shishitos are easy to grow

These are actually very easy to grow. We used to buy them at the grocery store in small boxes for $5-7 and now we can pick a "box" of them every few days. We like to fry them in a cast iron pan with olive oil, a splash of lemon juice, and salt & pepper. Delicious.
