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!

sprouted and doing well

I planted 5 seeds in each pot, and I had at least 3 sprouts in each pot! Can't wait for them to fruit!

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
