Poblano (Ripened to Red)

The Poblano is a mild chilli (Scoville Units 1000 – 2000) originating from Puebla, Mexico, It is part of the Capsicum annuum species, the most popular of all Chilli species. The plant is multi stemmed and grows to 60cm / 25 inches high, in the UK it is possible to grow these in a Poly tunnel or Green house with out to many problems

The Pods grow to about 15cm / 6 inches long and about 8cm / 3 inches wide are most ofter used when green, but will ripen to red, when dried, it becomes the Ancho and is very closely related to the Mulato.

They have a thick waxy skin, which can be easily removed by roasting over flames or on a BBQ (follow this link to see the process)
