This variety, Mellow Star, is a traditional Japanese shishito pepper.
Avg. 3 1/2-4″ heavily wrinkled fruits are thin-walled, mild (no heat)
when green, and slightly sweet when red. Popular in Japan where its thin
walls make it particularly suitable for tempura. Also very good
roasted, in stir fries, or sautés. In Asia, fruits are always cooked
green but they also may be used red. Thinly sliced, the red fruits are
excellent in salads and coleslaw. Large, upright plants produce good
yields over an extended harvest period.
