Last year, we grew two shishito pepper plants that provided us with generous weekly harvests. Zach would pick them, brush them with oil, sprinkle some salt, and grill them for dinner. We loved our shishito plants! This year, we tried to grow some shishito peppers again, but none of our seeds germinated. Luckily, we were also trying out some Mellow Star pepper seeds (that we got from Johnny's Selected Seeds), and we now have two gorgeous plants that are loaded with blooms and peppers. Mellow Stars look just like shishito peppers. We had to try some to make sure they taste like shishito peppers too.
Thankfully, they do!
