Plant Information
Roasted, stuffed, sliced for salads, or chopped up for countless recipes, Poblano peppers offer moderate hotness and lots of versatility. When dried, they become Anchos and are equally as awesome, adding loads of fiery flavor as a popular spice. Poblano Ancho hot pepper plants are reliable and easy growers, making themselves right at home in your garden or containers. They will grow to about 2.5 feet tall and will quickly begin bearing it all - loads and loads of heart-shaped peppers as big as 4.5 inches in diameter. The peppers will be green in the beginning and ripen to red as they reach maturity, getting gradually hotter along the way. Poblano Ancho peppers are considered mild in the grand scheme of things, with a rather low range of 1,000-2,000 units on the Scoville heat scale.
