Shishito peppers are amazing and easy to prepare, oil, char, salt and start eating. A really fun food as they say 10% are hot, although in my experience the percentage is higher.

Thing is, I'm looking for them year round now that I'm hooked. They are becoming more prevalent as a Canadian greenhouse company marketing them under the brand Shazaam introduced them this past year. I found them at PA briefly this summer and at a Metro in Picton, ON believe it or not.
Anyone know where I can get these wonderful peppers year round? I emailed the Shazaam company with no response. Saw some old shriveled ones at Jean Talon market at a high price. Lufa lists them at 50 cents each which is insane. Ideas?
