Ancho Gigantes Heirloom Pepper Seeds
This distinctively rich Mexican poblano has a smoky yet sweet flavor. When poblano peppers are dark green-black they can be used for stuffing and roasting. When the peppers ripen to red, they can be dried as ancho chiles and used to make sauces, soups, and meat seasoning.
This classic Mexican pepper is heart-shaped and over 4” long by 2-1/2” across at the shoulder. Plants are 24” high and will continue to grow more peppers if picked frequently. When fresh it is Poblano and when dry it is Ancho.
