The Shishito Pepper is a staple in Japan and is becoming very popular in the U.S. The Shishito Pepper plant grows to around 3 feet and produces heavily wrinkled peppers. When they are ripe, they will be mild 3-4 inches peppers with thin walls. They will be ready to harvest in 60 days and can be picked green, or you can wait until they are red which will be a sweeter flavor. They are known to be used for stir-fries, sautéed in oil, and are perfect for tempura!
WARNING: Plants adjust to small, gradual changes in their environment better than sudden shifts, which is what the hardening off process is all about. Just as you get burned when you bare your untanned skin to the sun, leaves of plants started indoors will develop pale, sunburned patches if they are suddenly exposed to too much sun. The story has a happier ending when you introduce seedlings to bright light and sheltered breezes gradually, over a period of one to three weeks.
