Pepper (Sweet) ‘Mellow Star’ Shishito type non-bell

Description

A wildly popular Japanese snacking pepper, this shishito type has characteristically thin skin and a very mild flavor. The 3 ½” to 4” long, deeply wrinkled fruit are typically used in stir fries and tempura, or pan fried with a touch of oil and soy sauce. For a sweeter flavor, allow the fruit to ripen to a bright red. 70-80 days. Photo courtesy of Territorial Seed.

Care: Plant 18-24″ apart in rows 24-30″ apart in full sun. Keep soil uniformly moist (but not waterlogged) for best production.
