The shishito, a Japanese frying pepper, has gained a lot of popularity in the past few years. Try it stir-fried over high heat until blistered with just some salt and olive oil, and aioli on the side.  Pick the green fruit when they are about 3 ½ to 4 inches long and be sure to use two hands when you harvest - one pulling the pepper and one holding the plant to avoid pulling it from the ground! Be sure to check your peppers frequently once they reach a harvestable size. The more frequently you harvest, the more your plant will produce.

 Spacing: 12-18” apart

Size of Fruit/Crop: 3-4”

Days until harvest: 60 days
