Shishito peppers are usually mild, sweet and a bit citrusy. But, like the Padron pepper (which is likely where shishitos originated from), every once in a while you will bite into a pepper that has some heat to it. Roughly one out of 20 Shishito peppers will be spicy.
The pepper pods are wrinkly, slender, 2-3 inches long, with thin walls.
Shishito peppers are an amazing appetizer simply grilled or roasted with some good olive oil, salt and pepper.
