This medium early, small, sweet/ mildly spicy, thin-walled glossy green pepper is popular in Japan. The fruits grow up to 3-4" long. Plant has a spreading habit and produces prolifically. Good for garden, greenhouse, and open field growing.


Culinary tips: Japanese peppers can be mildly spicy and are most often used in cooking. Saute peppers in olive oil, over high heat, until they just begin to blister- serve hot, sprinkled with sea salt. Excellent for tempura, yakitori, and sautéed.
