Padron Pepper Seeds

I love Padron peppers, they’re the Spanish ‘tapas’ peppers and are fantastic grilled or pan fried and salted. Also wonderful preserved by roasting in a light coating of olive oil with garlic salt & pepper - potted up into hot jars and sealed with hot olive oil - yum mate -seriously yum. Anyhow, I bought seed from Franchi, because I’m generally impressed by the quality of everything I’ve bought from them. They germinated well and are doing fine but, though I have good expectations, this is too early to review anything beyond that. G’wan buy some and get them sown pronto!
