Shishito peppers are a popular variety of East Asian chili, specifically originating from Japan. They are known for their sweet, grassy, citrusy, and sometimes smoky flavor, making them a favorite in culinary uses. These peppers are slender, ranging from 2 to 4 inches in length, and have a characteristic thin skin and walls. While they typically exhibit very mild heat levels, ranging from 0 to 200 Scoville Heat Units (SHUs), it's interesting to note that about one out of every ten to twenty peppers may pack a slightly spicier punch, adding an element of surprise when consuming them.

Shishito peppers are versatile in cooking, favored for methods like blistering over an open flame or frying, which brings out their unique flavors. Despite their occasional spicy outlier, they are largely mild, allowing them to be enjoyed in a variety of dishes without overpowering them with heat.

Shipping Live Plants

Live plants, particularly annual vegetables, can be quite delicate. To ensure their safe arrival in optimal condition, we take several precautionary measures:

  1. Rigorous hardening off process: We prepare the plants to be resilient enough for their journey by gradually acclimating them to outdoor conditions.

  2. Application of organic prebiotics and supplements: We treat plants with natural products to enhance their health and vigor before they make the journey.

  3. Development of a strong root system: We prioritize cultivating a robust root system so the plants can quickly adapt and flourish upon arrival.

  4. Custom packing materials: We use specially designed packing materials to secure and protect the plants during transit, minimizing the risk of damage and ensuring they arrive in the best possible condition.

Our live plants are sold in 3-inch pots and can be shipped to all US states, with the exception of Alaska, Hawaii, California, Oregon, and Washington state. We utilize Priority Mail for shipping to ensure a speedy delivery and ship only on Mondays to ensure no plants languish in mailrooms over the weekend. Our packaging is for 3 plants; thus, flat rate shipping is in multiples of 3 plants for $14, and it will auto-populate at checkout.
