This traditional famous Spanish 'Tapas' chilli pepper usually fried in olive oil and sea salt, it is also known as 'Pimientos de Padron'. It is a celebrated speciality of the town of Padron, so much so that they have an annual festival in its honour.
The Pardon is a great all round chilli to have in the kitchen as it is a medium-sized, bushy plant with medium to long flat, conical light green fruits, turning red when ripe. Meaty and very tasty, in fact a classic Tapas variety from Galicia in Spain, pan fried in olive oil, sea salt and served with beer, what could be better!
Peppers are a vital part of the cooking for so many dishes. Best crops will be achieved in a greenhouse, but smaller, later crops can be produced when grown in a sunny sheltered location outdoors - if your local weather is suitable. Some dwarf varieties are ideal for growing in pots on the patio.
