The quick and convenient guide to growing your very own Shichito Peppers!
Shishito peppers are a Japanese heirloom pepper variety with a crisp fruity sweet pepper flavor and just a bit hint of heat that is brought out by cooking them.
How To Grow Shishito From Seeds
# 1 | Start your shishito pepper seeds indoors in a high quality soil 8 weeks before your last frost date. Pepper seeds need warm soil to germinate so use a heat mat or the top of your fridge for the first few days until they sprout.
# 2 | Gently press your shishito seeds into the surface of the soil or barely cover them and use your hands to firm them down, keep your seeds evenly moist. Make sure they are in a spot they will get an ample amount of bright light.
# 3 | Seeds should germinate in 10-15 days.
