Description

The best for chiles rellenos! Easy to grow and produces loads of 3-6” elongated cone-shaped fruits, usually quite mild — but with a little kick. The fruit is a deep dark green, with meaty walls and thin ribs. Roast peppers until the skin blisters/blackens, then place hot peppers in a paper bag, close and steam for 10 minutes. Peel off the charred skin and stuff as desired. If you dehydrate foods, this is wonderful as a chile powder or in a blend. Roasted poblanos also freeze very well.
