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: We ship our freshly harvested peppers weekly on a first come, first served basis. Your order will ship within 7 days depending on availability. If there are items in your order other than Padrón peppers, we will ship your entire order to you when the peppers are available. We suggest placing your Padrón peppers orders separately if you would like to have the other products in your cart shipped now.

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 across 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."

We are thrilled to offer fresh Pimientos de Padrón peppers grown from Spanish seeds. Every couple of days during the growing season, 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!

    Maite - Birmingham , AL October 2018

  • "While these Pimientos de Padron were sourced from the U.S., they brought back memories of our last trip to Madrid in another September. Were there a few more "hot" than "not"? Perhaps, but they were still mostly sweet and when blistered and salted they were delicious."

    Lawrence - Littleton, MA October 2018

    Anne - Greenlawn, NY September 2018

    BillG - Portland, Oregon August 2012

  • "These peppers were fantastic! I will order them again and look forward to serving them at my next dinner party"

    Lynne - November 2011

  • "As a grower of the padrons, customers need to realize two realities. When we have a hot summer the peppers will be hotter. The larger the pepper the hotter the pepper. Ideally, the pepper should be picked while still small, picked daily, and be aware of peak heat in the summer. Hope this helps."

    Padron - October 2011

  • "My order was an gift to an friend, they confirmed the quality was GREAT! I'm now, ready, to experience such GREAT quality, with my personal future order, of your products!Can't wait, to comment on my future order, until then, continue with your success, in providing QUALITY PRODUCTS, to US/YOUR CUSTOMERS!"

    ACSF - July 2011

    Linda - November 2010

  • "What a fun treat! These arrived in such a fresh state of yumminess, that I almost hated to saute them...but I sure am glad that I did. The aroma of roasted peppers permeated the house, creating a teaser of what was to come! The flavor was sublime. The mild ones were sweet and the hot ones made my teeth tingle! Thanks for a great product, LaTienda. PS - my meal consisted of these peppers, Galician bread, Manchego cheese, Txakoli wine, and your chocolate fig Rabitos. I was in Spanish Heaven!"

    Donna - October 2010

  • "This site piqued my interest since I am a HUGE FAN of Spanish paprika and Spanish dishes.... I ordered these PADRON Peppers (fresh) because I really like all sort of peppers from mild to hot (not TOO HOT please). they arrived at my home in Wisconsin in styrofoam and freeze-bags along with some spanish cheese... they were looking REAL GOOD! On the lid of the PKG was a simple recipe: Fry in olive oil, add salt... enjoy. THESE ARE VERY TASTY PEPPERS and the QUALITY i recieved were EXCELLENT! Thanks! I already have a recipe in mind for these..... "

    Nut - October 2010

  • "10/7/2010 I just received and cooked these peppers today. Not only do they smell spicy hot when fresh but they are very spicy compared to earlier this season. Still tasty though!"

    Linda - October 2010

  • "End of season - peppers were pretty small, but very tasty. Had several hot ones. Will definitely order more during peak season."

    nochef - October 2010

  • "Fantastic peppers. Great sauteed in a little olive oil and rock salt. Seems like the later in the season you order them the higher percentage of hot ones you get."

    Logan - September 2010

  • "OMG...addicting! Yes...these simple little peppers were the hit of the christening party! And yes...they are mild, until you hit that HOT, FIERY, CHOKING one! And in the two boxes we had, there were only about 5-6 hot ones...will order again...need my Padron fix!"

    Vexvet - September 2010

  • "Padron peppers are bites of Spain, expressing the best of the country's simplicity when it comes to food: pure, fresh ingredients, cooked quickly with only oil and salt, and flavor that compels you to eat another one and another one and . . . ."

    Rick - September 2010

  • "Great as we expected - perfect peppers 1 in 10 were hot! "

    Carol - September 2010

  • "FRESH and crisp!!! Not a single little one was soggy. The obvious initial quality of the peppers and the attention paid to maintaining the integrity of this highly perishable product during delivery is impressive and paid off for my taste buds. Yes, I was surprised. And grateful. "

    Ron - August 2010

  • "Received these yesterday. Well packaged in a Styrofoam cooler with a sealed ice pack. They arrived in excellent shape looking totally unstressed. Rinsed and dried them, heated some olive oil in a black iron skillet and cooked them until they were browned and blistered. Plated them and ate every one. I ordered another pound for my brother. I loved them! "

    Aitch - August 2010

  • "Just like what I had in Galicia!!! YEH!"

    Cari - August 2010

  • "Fun and delicious...Spanish roulette indeed! There were only about 4 hot ones in our lot and we love them as an appetizer. "

    J - August 2010

  • "These peppers are truly addicting! Received my first order recently and cooked some as suggested in olive oil and salt...couldn't stop eating them. The flavor is rich and vegetal with just a hint of heat...a perfect combination. "

    lori - October 2009

  • "Great tapa -- we loved them! This year we didn't get a single hot pepper in the batch which was disappointing . . . but they were delicious nevertheless."

    Rhonda - October 2009

  • "Brought back fond memories of the cafes in Barcelona. "

    Scott - October 2009

  • "I was actually very disappointed in the peppers. I've had them before and know how delicious they can be, but when I tasted the padron perppers I received, they were uncharacteristically bitter. I'm not sure if they were just not fresh, but sadly, I ended up throwing out both containers."

    Courtney - October 2009

  • "Fell in love with these peppers in May while in Madrid. Was very excited when I found they could be ordered because I couldn't find them in the states, but was somewhat dissappointed when they arrived. Very small and slightly wilted. The flavor was very good but I felt for $30 a pound with shipping, could have been better. :/"

    Victoria - September 2009

  • "I agree with Nancy. Need to be larger. We have not had any hot peppers. They have all been sweet. We do love them regardless. "

    Maureen - September 2009

  • "Had them for the first time in Madrid, totally worth buying them at La Tienda and getting them shipped to your home. They arrived fresh. Very easy to make, La Tienda supplies instructions. Very authentic!"

    Jane - September 2009

  • "I was in Spain on a mission trip for 2 weeks and we were introduced to these peppers the 1st night in our albergue on the Camino de Santiago. It was our favorite side and I was so excited to see that I was able to have them at home in Ohio too. Excelent pepper, incredible taste and exciting to eat with a group because you never know who's getting the hot ones."

    Chef - August 2009

  • "excellent"

    petrany - August 2009

  • "My Padron peppers arrived the other day. I fried them in olive oil and sprinkled with light salt and freshly ground pepper. Absolutely delicious and worth the price !!!! Wish we had more at the time of eating them !!"

    Jack - August 2009

  • "The Pimientos were delicious. My husband is from Galicia and we love Padron pimientos. I will order again. One suggestion - pimientos should be picked when a little larger."

    Nancy - August 2009

  • "I thought OK, these peppers can't possibly equal the hype generated by the folks at La Tienda. However, thought I would try them. OMG, they are fantastic - sweet (most of them) and, oh so tender with great flavor. I'm back to order another 4 lbs. I was happy to read on line that a woman froze some and they were still wonderful. I plan on doing the same....who wants to wait til next year for such a treat !"

    Holly - August 2009

  • Gerardo - June 2009

  • "Wonderful! I found that I couldn't eat them fast enough so I put them in freezer bags and froze them. When I wanted some I pulled a handful out, let them thaw and cooked them.....Delicious!"
