Vegetable Pepper 'Poblano'

Hot Chili Pepper

Known as the bell pepper of Mexican cuisine, the Poblano is the pepper for those who want a little spice without a lot of heat. They are dark green and approximately 4-5” long and 2-3” wide. They are triangular in shape and smaller, more savory and hotter than bell peppers. If the Poblano is left to ripen, it will turn reddish brown and become sweeter than the green ones. They are best when roasted with a little olive oil or grilled until they are soft enough to peel the skin from the paper. Dried Poblanos are also known as ancho chiles. The Poblano pepper is the traditional pepper stuffed with cheese to make chiles rellenos. The actual Poblano plant is multi-stemmed and reaches approximately 25” in height. This perennial peaks in summer and fall.
