  • "Spanish Roulette!" -The NY Times
  • Classic tapa of Galicia
  • Some are hot, and some are not!
  • Grown from true Padron pepper seeds from Spain
  • Size - 1 Pound (about 50 peppers)

Pimientos de Padrón are amazingly tasty, tiny fresh peppers originally from Galicia in northwest Spain. Sizzled in olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt, they have a delicious flavor and most are mild. But once in a while you will bite into a spicy pepper - the reason The New York Times coined them "Spanish Roulette!"

NOTE: Padrón peppers are only available during the summer when they are in season. Please click the "Email me when available" link above to be notified when they are back in stock. Thanks!

People flock to tapas bars across Galicia to savor a plateful of these unique peppers lightly seared in olive oil, and then sprinkled with sea salt. Their fame has spread throughout the rest of Spain – and now to America!

What makes these little Padrón peppers unique is that randomly you will pop a spicy one in your mouth! Since there is no way to distinguish the spicy one from the rest, which are sweet, you never know when you will get a surprise. In Galicia they have a saying: "Los pimientos de Padrón, unos pican y otros no," basically translated as "Some are hot and some are not." A writer from The New York Times calls the experience "Spanish Roulette!"

We are thrilled to offer fresh Pimientos de Padrón peppers grown from Spanish seeds and harvested by a family farmer in the United States. Every couple of days during the growing season (August through October approximately), our farmer hand-picks these small, crisp peppers. Following the tradition of the farmers of the village of Padrón, he selects only the small young peppers so most are mild. The following morning we receive these fresh peppers and send them on to you!

Padrón peppers are available in late summer, from August to October.

If the peppers are out of season, make sure you click EMAIL ME WHEN AVAILABLE under the product, and you will be the first to know when they are available again!
