The Japanese sweet pepper, Shishito peppers are slender and wrinkly with thin-walled, an elongated shape, maturing from bright green to red, with a sweeter taste when it ripens to red. Prized by restaurants and a favorite among chefs. It produces handfuls of finger-long fruits typically used when green (though also fine to eat when red).
