Hailing from Japan, Shishito peppers are elongated, wrinkled pods known for their mild heat, occasionally offering subtle spicy kicks. These heirloom peppers, thin-walled and glossy emerald green before ripening to red, boast a distinctive, slightly sweet taste complemented by a hint of smokiness when blistered. Celebrated worldwide, they've become a culinary favorite for their adaptability—ideal for grilling, pan-frying, or serving as a beloved appetizer due to their gentle heat and outstanding flavor.

Start seed indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost. A heat mat helps to speed up the germination process. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 65-85 degrees. Peppers generally have long growing seasons and grow slowly during cool temperatures. Delay transplanting until your soil has thoroughly warmed up in the spring. A week before transplanting time, harden off plants by exposing them to an increasing number of hours outdoors each day. Peppers are less cold tolerant than tomatoes.
