Padrón peppers, originating from Spain, are small, mild chili peppers prized for their unique taste and culinary versatility. These peppers are typically small, about 1-2 inches in length, and are known for their slightly wrinkled, vibrant green skin.

What distinguishes these peppers is their characteristic flavor profile, which is mild with a touch of sweetness, coupled with occasional hints of heat. Most Padrón peppers are mild, but approximately one in ten peppers may surprise with a slightly spicy kick, although the heat is generally much milder compared to other chili varieties.

A popular way to enjoy Padrón peppers is by blistering and charring them in olive oil and sprinkling them with coarse sea salt, which enhances their natural flavor. Known as "Pimientos de Padrón," this traditional Spanish dish is often served as a tapa or appetizer. Their mild taste and occasional mild heat make them a delightful addition to various dishes, including salads, stir-fries, or as a side dish for meats and seafood.
