Poblano - Fresh green poblanos make some of the best rellenos because of their mild heat and heart-like shape. Anchos are the dried form of this pepper, and are used in making many sauces like mole. This heirloom is easy to grow. 

Chiles are 4" long and 2-1/2" wide and ripen from dark green to rust red. Plants are 30" tall and yield a continuous harvest all season long. Capsicum annuum (75 days)

Heat Level: Mild  Scoville 500 - 1,000

~ Packet contains 10 seeds. 

In early spring, start seeds indoors 8 weeks prior to warm nightly temperatures. Place the seeds in sterile media and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, bright light and keep moist at all times. Seeds will germinate in 7 - 21 days. Transplant seedlings into pots and grow until there are 6 true leaves on the plant. Plant them directly into rich soil, 30” apart in the garden, or into large 5 gallon containers. Harvest chiles when they are green. 

All of our seeds are GMO-free.

These are a kitchen favorite

We love cooking with these delicious pods – roasting them really brings out their rich flavor.

Great for Colorado

If you garden in Colorado or any high elevation, short growing season, hail storms late July, blistering hot days and dang near hurricane force winds…. These are the seeds for you. My plants were put to the test this year and this was one of my highest yielding and best performing and most resilient pepper plants. These seeds are coming from very good genetic lines and I highly recommend them. This particular plant was first eaten to the nub… TWICE… by rabbits. We had an unbelievably windy spring, this plant kept on growing, it just has a beautiful thick trunk on it. July 26th came along and we got SMASHED by a hail storm. My garden looked like it went through the mulcher, my house got a whole new roof and paint and gutters from how bad the storm was, and by late September I harvested about two dozen large healthy peppers. We have a very short growing season so I never expect a huge harvest first year. But this year I am storing my pepper plants to replant next year (they are perennials) and am pretty sure I’ll get a good second year harvest.

Poblano Chilis

An annual favorite of ours. Great for salsas, cheese filled. I can them in strips for easier use throughout the year.

Great peppers!

Bought these seeds last year. Very good germination rate. They produced half a dozen tall, elegant plants which yielded a prolific crop of tasty peppers with just the right level of heat for chiles rellenos and general purpose use (let them ripen all the way to bright red and substitute for bell peppers in any sauce or relish to kick it up a bit). Overwintered the two best plants and got the same yield and quality this year. Very useful and versatile pepper.

Seeds for Zone 7a

I ordered several seeds varieties for 2021. So far I am very happy with the delivery. Looking forward to start in April for June planting. Thanks for excellent service! Found this gem of a company that specializes in peppers. Thanks Sandia Seed Company! I could not have found the collection I bought from you anywhere else!
