Also known as the Pimiento de Padron pepper, Pimento Padron peppers, or small green Spanish peppers, this is a famous Spanish heirloom named after the town where they originated. This is a unique and delightful little pepper with a variety of traditional uses.

The peppers grow abundantly on vigorous 3 ft. tall plants that will bear pods early and for a longer season. Although you can pick the Padron chili pepper when they are matured to their green or red stage, we recommend harvesting them when they grow 2-3" long. These peppers take 60 days to reach maturity.

Gourmet gardeners will love growing the Padron pepper seed for their productivity, flavors and heat, and easy maintenance. They have spice in them, but less spice than a Jalapeño, and the red Padrons have a sweeter flavor. These mild yet flavorful peppers are typically sautéed in olive oil with a pinch of salt and eaten as an appetizer in Spanish regions. Once you taste these savory little peppers, you’ll want to keep eating more!

  • 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.
