Like its namesake, the crown of this plant bears clusters of brilliant red peppers arranged in a circle - like the petals of a poinsettia. Thin, 3-inch long chillies point upwards through dark green foliage, making for a very pretty plant. The fruit is very hot. Well suited for growing in pots.

Heat: 2,000 Scoville units.

Average contents 20 seeds.

This is the first time that I have grown Padron peppers and can't get enough of them! From the pan fried (or done in the oven) tapas as described elsewhere, to using the large hotter ones stuffed with rice and baked (the rice becomes quite fiery). They are also good for general purpose cooking without being too hot. Good croppers in a unheated greenhouse. As an extra bonus, there is an element of Russian Roulette involved as some individual peppers are much hotter than others that look identical - as my family members can testify!

I've often bought bags of padron peppers from my local green grocer, but there's nothing like having them fresh off the bush - they develop a much nuttier flavour when they're fried if they're super fresh. My only mistake was allowing them to get a little too big - they get quite spicy if left to grow too big! My poor guests who don't like hot food have not yet forgiven me!
