Also known as the "lion's head" chilli, you nevertheless won't need to be particularly brave to eat and enjoy this (usually) very mild variety. Enjoy them green, or let the fruits mature to a fiery red that belies their smooth flavour - however, occasional fruits are hot - so be ready for surprises. Those with a good imagination will see the "lion's head" at the tip of each fruit. Fry them on their own as a side dish, add to salads, or let your creativity run wild

  • Growing Information

    How to Sow

    Growing peppers is easy, so direct sowing is usually fine, but for good control over your germination conditions, sowing in trays is usually a better bet. A light covering soil is all these seeds need. Then water well and only repeat when you see the soil surface starting to dry out.

    How to Harvest

    As soon as your peppers look big enough to eat, you can start to harvest them. If you want red peppers, leave them on the vine until they colour up. Cut them off with a sharp pair of scissors, secateurs or a knife to avoid damage to the fruit or the plant.

    SHISHITO

    Really like these guys. I love the Padron peppers but they can be very hot at times. Shishito fits the bill. Just right.
    Cheers Geoff
