Padron peppers from greenmarkets

Icabod | Sep 12, 201108:32 AM

Has anyone else found these to be way too spicy? I've seen some vendors market them as "one in eight are spicy (the Russian roulette of peppers!)," but when I ate these in Spain they were very mild. I sauteed a Padron pepper I got from the market last week and had to run for the milk after biting into it.

Maybe it has to do with the growing conditions here or season we've had. I'm just wondering if anyone has any thoughts/insight into this.
