Padrón  Mild / Green / 60 days / SHU 100-1,000 


If you want an authentic regional pepper from Spain, this is it!  Used when small for mildest flavor, these peppers are a favorite in tapas bars across Spain.  They are traditionally picked green, sautéed in olive oil and finished with coarse-ground sea salt for a delectable appetizer.  Note this pepper is humorously referred to as “Spanish Roulette”:  although 90% of them are mild you will occasionally come across an unpredictable hot one.
