One of the unique characteristics of shishito peppers is that they are not uniformly spicy. While most of the peppers are mild, some can be quite hot, making eating shishito peppers a bit of a game of culinary roulette. This variation in heat level adds to the excitement and flavor of eating shishito peppers.
Shishito peppers have become increasingly popular in recent years, both in Japanese cuisine and in other international cuisines as a flavorful and unique ingredient. They are also relatively easy to grow at home, making them a popular choice for home gardeners.
These seedlings will mature in 55 to 65 days. You want to make sure to plant these seedlings in large container pots or in raised garden beds as they can get up to 2 feet high and 18 inches across. Shishito peppers are best when picked and cooked before they start turning red. Once temperatures dip into the low 50's consistently, you will wind down the plant and take your final harvest.
