This flavourful pepper originates from Japan i gets it’s name from the shape of the tip of the pepper, which looks like a lion. These little peppers are a bit of a game to eat. They are flavourful and mild, until they are not. around every 10 or so peppers you will get a HOT one! These are perfect tossed in some olive or sesame oil, a little salt, and then grilled. Great summer BBQ finger food. Alternately, you can also let them turn red and harvest for drying to make a great twist on paprika. The plants are prolific in their production and they go all season long. We recommend staking them for best results.
