Pimiento de Padron #9133 (30 seeds)
This pepper from Spain is traditionally used in its immature green stage, when it is picked quite small and fried in olive oil and served as an appetizer called a 'tapa.' When harvested small and green, peppers are mild, but get hotter as they grow. At full maturity, they are about 2 1/2 in. long and 1 1/4 in. wide, deep red and fiery hot. 65 days.
