Gourmet gardeners will love this authentic Spanish HEIRLOOM, a prized specialty pepper direct from the Galicia region. A tapas food tradition, the young peppers are picked small and bite-sized, quickly sizzled in a fruity olive oil, sprinkled with a coarse sea salt, and eaten whole, seeds, stems and all. They are mostly mild, but an occasional unpredictable hot one lends an element of “Spanish Roulette” to your dining. Plants are vigorous and may be harvested early, and abundantly, for an extremely long season. Heat increases as they ripen to red. Also savored as a pickled pepper treat!
