Fushimi peppers

I love these Japanese peppers I got as starts locally from my friend, owner of Vilardi Gardens. From the Kitazawa Seed Company description: "This sweet Japanese pepper is thin-walled and glossy bright green. The fruits are slender, tapered and grow to 6" in length. It is very easy to grow, produces good quality and prolific harvests."  I serve them simply pan-roasted with a sprinkle of togarashi seasoning.
