The name of Padron Peppers is associated with the name of the council Padron, located in Galicia (a northwest region of Spain). Spanish monk brought Padron Peppers back from South America in the 16th century. The Monks grew the peppers in the garden for their convent, in the small village of Hebron, within the small district of Padron. More than 400 years later these peppers are no longer grown by monks but by local farmers. Generation after generation, Padronians have adapted the traditional methods introduced by the monks and embraced the advancement of technology to offer
a superior quality product.
