6" pots should be fine though you could go bigger, we have about 7 plants grown from seed in the greenhouse so roll on the summer for an ice cold beer and some padrons!

Cheers, Steve

Re: Padron Peppers

Just looked around on the web and found some nice looking recipes including ones for crab-stuffed then breaded and fried and another for a cheese stuffed one using Tetilla (I think it's called.) cheese.

What is it about these that is different? Are they especially hot? Haven't heard of them before.

Padrón is a region of Galicia, northwest Spain, with a climate not dissimilar to that of Essex. The locals have a saying about the famous small green peppers:

        "Pimientos del Padrón, unos pican e outros non"

   ie. some are hot and some are not

Re: Padron Peppers

The best thing about these peppers isnt exactly the flavour, I mean they re ok but nothing out of this world. The funny thing is especially when among friends is that its like playing russian roulette but with food cause most of them are mild but ocasionally someone chews one of those....mega HOT, can hardly breathe and its a general laugh!

Re: Padron Peppers

I am busy spreading the gospel of Padron here in the US,  My sister is going to look for the seeds in her part of the country while I'll be looking to see if they have plants at a nearby organic nursery.  We both went online yesterday to read about them.

Re: Padron Peppers

Good luck in your seed/plantquest, if they grow in a greenhouse in Essex UK,  then I am sure they would thrive in sunny California!.

Cheers, Steve
