Spanish Peppers

TNExplorer | Jul 30, 2009 01:46 PM

I garden in Tennessee, northern zone 7/southern zone 6. This year I'm having great success with pimientoes de Padron and piquillo peppers, both specialties of northern Spain. I grew them from seed, and the plant are yielding well. (We have had a bit cooler July, with good rainfall.) My first pan of Padrons -- roasted whole in a skillet in a bit of olive oil, then sprinkled with coarse salt -- tasted just as they did when I had them in Santiago de Compostela. Can't wait until the piquillos ripen. I'm writing this to encourage others to try these wonderful peppers at home.
