New! Spicy shishito. Featured for its mildly spicy flavor and exceptional culinary quality, Shishimai is a new take on the traditional Japanese shishito, which typically has no heat. Medium-green, wrinkled, and thin-walled fruits average 3 1/2″–4″ long. Stake the plants for straighter, cleaner fruits, as they are prolific and tend to be floppy. Photo courtesy of Johnny’s Seed.
Care: Plant 18-24″ apart in rows 24-30″ apart in full sun. Keep soil uniformly moist (but not waterlogged) for best production.
