Wikipedia SummaryPadrón peppers (Galician: pementos de Padrón) or Herbón peppers are a variety of peppers (Capsicum annuum) from the municipality of Padrón in the province of A Coruña, Galicia, northwestern Spain. These are small peppers about 2 inches (5 cm) long, with a colour ranging from bright green to yellowish green, and occasionally red. It's said that solely watering the soil of the plant is likely to produce milder pimentos, whilst watering the whole plant, leaves and stalks included, produces peppers of the spicier variety.The peppers are customarily fried in olive oil until the skin starts to blister and the pepper collapses. Characteristics == These peppers are grown along the banks of the river Ulla and its tributary Sar, especially in the greenhouses of the municipality of Padrón, hence the name. The taste is mild, but some exemplars can be quite hot, which property has given rise to the popular Galician aphorism Os pementos de Padrón, uns pican e outros non ('Padrón peppers, some are hot, some are not').
