Experience the culinary charm of Shishito Peppers, a Japanese staple now gaining widespread popularity in the U.S. Elevate your home gardening with our Shishito Pepper Plants, where you'll cultivate 3ft. tall plants that yield an abundance of 3-4" pods with thin-walls, very wrinkled skin and an elongated shape. You'll watch them transform from green to red, signaling their journey from mild to sweet as they ripen. The unique thrill lies in their Russian Roulette tendency, where only one out of every 10-20 peppers surprises you with an unexpected burst of incredible heat. 

Enjoy the delightful sweet, citrusy, and smoky flavors enhanced to perfection through grilling or sautéing. For a mouthwatering treat, sauté these peppers in olive oil until they blister, sprinkle with sea salt, and savor the exquisite taste. 

These Shishito Pepper Seedlings were carefully grown from seed in our greenhouse and are guaranteed to arrive alive and healthy. Promptly follow the instructions included in your plant box or visit our Pepper Plant Care page for more information.
