Chilli Pepper Seeds

Chilli pepper ‘Pimiento de Padron’ – Capsicum annuum.

In Galicia, Spain, padron chillies are thrown into a pan, tossed in hot olive oil until they blister, sprinkled with sea salt and served as tapas.

They are superior quality and meaty, with an unrivalled flavour, and between 1 in 4 and 1 in 10 can be hot - the ‘Russian roulette’ of chilli peppers where they say that 'one is hot and one is not'. 

Traditionally they are eaten with beer – just in case! 

Sowing

Annual: Sow in spring and early summer indoors in pots of seed compost. Plant outside in the ground or larger pots of potting compost when the risk of frost has passed.

Chillies do really well in containers placed on a sunny patio, and make great edible ornamentals.

At the end of the summer, bring them back indoors on a sunny windowsill to extend the season.

How your gift is doing good

At the Eden Project we believe plants are important to the future of us and our planet. Through our gardens and Biomes we inspire visitors to reconnect with the natural world around them - and to want to help preserve it. The money you spend in the Eden webshop goes towards our environmental education programmes.

Over 40,000 under-16s from 900 different schools visit our 'living classroom' each year. They get a unique opportunity to delve deep into the rainforest and form the vital connection with their environment that inspires them to want to conserve it.

Find out more about our plans to build a canopy walkway to continue our educational work around rainforests.
