A few notes about the peppers that you received in this week's basket:

Padrón Peppers: These peppers are small and range in color from bright green to yellow. Most are mild, but every so often you might bite into a wickedly hot one!

Fushimi Peppers: Usually about 6 inches in length, these Japanese peppers turn glossy red when ripe but are most often used in their green stage. They are thin-walled and sweet. Fantastic when cooked in stir-fry, tempura, or on the grill!

Hungarian Peppers: Similar to the Banana Wax Pepper, these are creamy-yellow translucent color with thin skin and thick flesh in their immature stage. Their flavor is sweet and ranges from warm to moderately hot. As the pepper matures, its color changes to hues of orange-red and the heat rises significantly as the pepper retains its sweetness. 

Enjoy the week!
