- a punnet of tomatoes
- 2 zucchinis
- 5 eggplants
I would so like to grow my own padron. I fell in love with them in when I first had them in tapas bars in Spain. Love at first bite! They are chubby little green chillies that can be mild and sweet lulling you into a false sense of confidence and then, WAM, you get a hot one! They are typically lightly fried until their skins peel back, tossed with sea salt and served with drinks (nice with a fino).
I have never seen them in seed catalogues or at the nursery or in the green grocer - just at a stall at Everleigh Markets.
Does anyone have any plants growing? Willing to share some seeds?
And while we are on the hunt.... does any one know where I can buy a finger lime plant in Sydney?
