Padron Chilli Pepper Seeds

The Tapas Pepper

Padron peppers are small, strongly flavoured green peppers that are traditionally grown in Padron – a region in North Western Spain.

One you have sown your seeds germination takes around 7 – 10 days or so. The heat level will vary according to the capsaicin within each chilli.

Although not 100% accurate the chillies that are grown towards late August and September tend to contain more capsaicin than the ones grown earlier in the season

Once fully grown you can then serve them fried with olive oil and served with coarse salt. They generally taste sweet and mild, though some are particularly hot and spicy.

We have selected a range of options for you to buy from – all from trusted and established UK retailers.

Heatwave Chilli Seeds

We have much to thank Columbus for who is in some quarters credited with discovering the cayenne pepper. It allows the green fingered among us as well as the culinary to enjoy the pleasure of this wonderful variety that grows red, yellow and orange.

We recommend sowing the seeds early in early spring with a good quality chilli compost barely covering the seeds. Germination usually takes place after 8-14 days at between 24 – 27C

Fatalii Chilli Seeds

Fatalii Chilli Pepper Seeds

This Chilli is no mug and the Fatalii (Capsicum Chinese) packs a punch on the Scoville Heat Rating Scale of between 125,000 – 325,000. This chilli that originates in Central and Southern Africa.

These chillies have a flavour which is fruity and citrusy and it has a searing heat that is comparably hotter to the standard habanero. Fatalii is a distant Habañero relative (a kind of estranged brother) and the fruit matures to bright yellow and is long, wrinkled and tapers to a point – about 2 to 3 inches long.

The plants produce lots of peppers – they start producing early and finish late. The chillies start with a pale green and they mature to a bright yellow (there are red Fataliis around as well, but the yellow one is the “real deal”)
