Padrón peppers are a variety of peppers from the municipality of Padrón in the province of A Coruña, Galicia in Northwestern Spain. A beloved market and street food of Spain. These are small peppers traditionally used green, fried in a bit of oil and dashed with sea salt. To smell them frying while walking the streets of Spain is purported to be a sumptuous experience – frying them in my kitchen in Maine is pretty awesome, too! Generally sweet when small (only 1 in 20 might be hot) but get a tad hot as they get larger. Even though I’m offering them for their sweet eating purpose, I left them in this hot pepper category. 60 days. Open-pollinated.
