A famous Spanish heirloom, named after the town where they originated. Color ranging from bright green to yellowish green, and occasionally red. Harvest Padron peppers when they are 1-1 1/2" long. About 1 out of 20 fruits will be hot, and the rest mild. All the fruits become hot if allowed to grow 2-3" long. Padrons are served sautéed in olive oil with a little sea salt, and eaten as tapas. Farmer Favorite.
