Does anybody grow Padron peppers?

If not then you should, I really wanted to add them to my already large variety i am growing next year, but after getting to try one.. or six, They are delicious, bought some from the farmers market today, did what the guy told me to do, kinda saute them in some olive oil to blister the skin a bit, take em out, salt, and chow down. Very mild peppers, slight bit hotter than an Anaheim I'd say, unless due to climate they came out very mild. Anyways, delicious pepper, try them if you can.

Yeah, I'm always looking for something interesting to grow. Another neat pepper is.....arg, can't recall the exact name, but it has blue peppers. It's on the first page of the "indoor peppers" thread.

Yeah, that's the one! Other peppers I've noticed that looks pretty interesting are the fish peppers, I'd like grow some of those as well.

more info I read on the padron, apparently about 1 in 20 peppers will be hot, and all peppers if you let them grow to 2 to 3 inches.. however, the ones i have been munching were about 2 to 2 1/2 inches and still mild...
