Padrón Peppers

Just arrived!

8th Feb 2021 | Fresh Produce

Now available from our Produce Department! Pimientos de Padron, the Padron chilli is most commonly consumed when small and green, when it has a fresh and sweet flavour. It is traditionally sauteed in olive oil and sea salt, and served in tapas bars across their hometown of Spain. When fully mature, they are red in colour and much spicier than their green counterparts. Whilst generally a mild chilli, measuring in between 500 to 2500 Scoville Heat Units, the occasional rogue Padron has earned this chilli the nickname of the 'spanish roulette' as some individual pods are significantly hotter.
