Wikipedia SummaryShishito pepper (獅子唐辛子, Shishitōgarashi) is a mildly spicy, East Asian variety of the species Capsicum annuum. It is known as kkwari-gochu (꽈리고추; 'groundcherry pepper') in Korea because its wrinkled surface resembles groundcherries. The name refers to the fact that the tip of the chili pepper (唐辛子, tōgarashi) looks like the head of a lion (獅子, shishi); in Japanese it is often abbreviated as shishitō.About one out of every eight peppers is spicy. It is thin-skinned and will blister and char easily compared with thicker-skinned varieties of peppers. See also == Shichimi, chili pepper in Japan Manganji pepper Fushimi pepper (伏見とうがらし) Padrón peppers, a similarly used pepper in Spain
