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.

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.

Beautiful big chiles

Loved growing these! So many big poblanos and great flavor!

Not ideal for containers or balconies

I would recommend these if you're able to give it the space and light it needs, but I wouldn't recommend growing these in a container or with less that full sun all day long. My plant was quite large but my peppers ended up pretty small (about clementine sized), though I acknowledge that's most likely due to the conditions I gave it. My peppers were otherwise very good!

Nice and large!

These are great poblanos for roasting and stuffing to make into chile rellanos. Nice and large with thick flesh, so they are easy to roast and peel and stuff. Will grow again! Good germination, too, nearly every seed sprouted with our seedling mat heat, I think the heat helps a lot with peppers.
