Himo Togarashi peppers, otherwise known as Sweet to Mild peppers, are specialty peppers from Japan used in their traditional cuisine. Known as the Yamato dento yasai, or “special traditional vegetable,” these stringy peppers may look rare and exotic, but they are considered a delicacy mostly used in special stir-fries.

Pepper plants will grow to an average of 3 ft. tall and produce heavy yields of stringy-looking peppers that spiral down from the plant’s branches. Ripening from green to red, these peppers have smooth skin but bumpy texture. Himo Togarashi peppers can be harvested when green or red; the redder they are, the sweeter their taste.

Himo Togarashi peppers have little to no heat and an incredibly sweet flavor to them. They are best cooked in stir-fries but can also be eaten fresh off the plant! Add these peppers to any salad, soup, stew, or dish you see fit to sweeten up!
