Shishito and Fushimi peppers
Shishito and Fushimi peppers are sweet and mild thin-walled pepper Japanese peppers. The Shishitos are giving me a bumper crop, and I'm harvesting Fushimi peppers from plants I got from Vilardi Gardens in the fall of 2013. Shishitos are believed to have been introduced to Japan by the Portuguese. Fushimi sweet peppers or fushimi-togarashi are considered a traditional kyo-yasai ("Kyoto vegetable") - an heirloom, premium variety from the Kyoto prefecture.
