Enjoy the taste of this Spanish Tapas Pepper picked fresh from your own plant. Chilli Pepper 'Padron' is variable in heat but ideally picked small and green for the lowest levels of heat. As the chillies get larger and mature to red, the heat increases. Chilli Pepper 'Padron' is excellent added to stir fries, stuffed or grilled. Height: 50cm (20"). Spread: 40cm (16").

1 Packet (10 Chilli Pepper Seeds) (TT00871)
Sow Chilli Pepper seeds on the surface of a good, free-draining, damp, seed sowing mix and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place seed trays in a propagator at a temperature of 25C (77F) until after germination, which takes up to 14 days. Do not exclude light as this helps germination. Once germinated, reduce temperature and maintain at 15C (54F)
When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into individual 7.5cm (3") pots of compost. When plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, transplant them into grow bags or containers in a greenhouse or polytunnel, or grown outdoors from mid June, in a sheltered position in full sun. Space pepper plants at a distance of 50cm (20") apart.

Prize Winners! 2011-06-10
A lovely chilli early and prolific. Mine grew to an impressive size while still green and won first prize at a well contested agricultural show. A must grow for next season.
Got addicted ti these on a trip to Barcelona so I was very happy to see last year that T&M stocked the seeds. Have had a few batches of these already and the plants are still going strong, and the peppers themselves are sublime. Would recommend growing in a greenhouse though, the outdoor ones didn't do so well. Definitely on my list to grow next year.
Great fun 2010-09-24
Grew these last year (bought seeds elsewhere but assume the same quality) in cheap plastic greenhouse. Eight plants provided four nights of chilli roulette for up to eight people. About one in five or 6 was hot, some very hot, but all tasted lovely. A definate for nect year.
