Shishimai is sweet and slightly smokey shishito pepper with a very mild spice that the whole family can enjoy. Whether served from home or in a five-star restaurant these peppers will take your next meal to a whole new level. Shishimai seeds can be direct seeded, but it is recommended to transplant. Transplants should be placed 12 inches apart, leaving ample room for growth. As the plant grows, it’s best to prune the first 2-5 flowers to promote growth. Harvest once the peppers reach 3-5 inches in length.
***Starting in the Fall of 2021 all the ONP inventory will be moving into Shishimai L3***
Our Shishimai L3 varietal is one of the first shishito's to have the L3 gene. The L3 gene is responsible for the hypersensitive response in Capsicum in plants against the infection of tobamoviruses. The resistance conferred by this gene is one of the most effective so far described against tobamoviruses.
Note: When Shishimai is overly mature the peppers will turn red and can become hot.
