Padron Peppers
Also known as pimientos de Padrón, these small green chili peppers are native to Padrón, Spain. Most have a sweet mild taste, but some are hot and spicy. The only way to determine the heat of the pepper is to eat it. Padróns are in season between June and September. Traditionally they are fried in olive oil and seasoned with coarse salt.

I had these peppers the first time I tried proper tapas in Madrid! They are soooooo nice! Luckily I didn't get any that were too spicy.
