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.
