Pimiento de Padron

This variety originally comes from Spain, more precisely from the area around the city of Padrón. What is striking about this variety is that the pods can not only look very different, but also vary in spiciness. For this reason, there is debate about the general spiciness of this variety.


The chili plant grows bushy and produces fruits of different shapes and sizes that ripen from green to red. Basically, they have a delicious paprika flavor.

“Pimientos de Padron” is also an indispensable appetizer in Spain and is offered as “tapas” almost everywhere. The pods are harvested green, braised in olive oil and served with freshly ground salt. The highlight: Many of the aromatic pods have a rather mild taste, but there are always a few “outliers” with a fiery spiciness, typical of the variety. So eating “Piementos de Padron” always ensures an exciting Spanish roulette.
