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. 

 Capsicum annuum (95 days) Heirloom - Open Pollinated

Heat Level: Mild Scoville: 1,000-3,000

~ Packet contains 30 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 or into large 5-gallon containers. Harvest peppers when they are green. 


All of our seeds are GMO-free.

THANK YOU SANDIA!

For always efficiently delivering consistant quality seeds, especially maintaining our precious heirlooms. Currently waiting for my new peppers to peek through the soil and praying for a good season this year.

Amazing!

I grew these last year from 2022 seed. 100% germination, and amazing production right until the frost did them in. I made so many stuffed poblanos, (they freeze well) and also soup. Ended up with bags full to give to family and friends. Thanks to Sandia for the generous amount of seed in the packet, I've planted more again, and the seeds are still germinating perfectly! I had planted one poblano in a 5-gallon pot as a trial. It produced many poblanos and although they got a lot of sun, they were considerably smaller than the ones in the garden.

Loved them

Grew them for the first time in 2023. I plan on getting more for 2024. I especially liked stuffing them.

Really nice sized peppers

Grew these for the first time this year. Really gives good sized poblanos ideal for Chile rellenos.
