(Capsicum annuum) A favorite among chefs, Shishito is a Japanese sweet pepper with outstanding flavor and prolific production. These 3” wrinkled peppers are thin-walled and ideal for tempura and stir-fries. Superb when roasted or grilled to a blistered char, tossed with oil, and dressed with a dash of salt and lemon juice.

Traditionally harvested when green, slightly sweeter when left on the plant to ripen to red.

Compact plant well suited to containers or open field growing.

Planting Instructions:
Start pepper plants indoors about 6-8 weeks before your last frost date. Sow 1-2 seeds 1/4" deep into individual containers filled with seed starting formula. Keep moist. Heated germination mats can help keep soil warmer for better germination. Transplant after seedlings have shown several sets of true leaves and only once you are sure the outside soil temperature is consistently above 65.

Additional Tips:
To get an early start with your peppers, cover the prepared bed with a dark colored polyethylene mulch or tarp at least a week before transplanting. This will heat the soil beneath and provide a better growing condition for young pepper plants.

Peppers are easily damaged when heavy with fruit. For support, tie the plants to stakes.

Harvest when mature size, and firm. Peppers can be harvested green or left on the vine to mature to bright red, orange, or yellow and become very sweet. Continuous harvesting will produce greater yields.
