Ancho/Poblano, Baron

Green Non-Bell Pepper

Baron has proven to produce better than other anchos under challenging and favorable conditions. The fruits are very large, avg. 5" x 3", and are typically two-lobed which makes them easy to stuff and cook in their signature dish, chile rellenos. More consistent than Tiburon.

NEW HOT PEPPER


Ancho/poblano, Caballero

Green Non-Bell Pepper
65-80 days

These relatively mild hot peppers have a perfect balance of heat and sweet rich flavor in their thick flesh and ribs. Known as Poblanos when green and Anchos when dried, they are used for roasting, stuffing, making chili powder and sauces, especially the classic mole. Large uniform glossy very dark green 3-lobed elongated fruit (3½–5" long x 3" wide) will mature to a deep brick red. Extremely productive in northern climates, the 3½' tall plants set 12–20 fruits per plant. Staking may be necessary.

HOT PEPPER


Carrot Bomb

Orange Non-Bell Pepper
74 days to orange

An explosion of round 1–2" shiny bright tangerine baubles blow up the pepper patch on sturdy 2–2½" plants. The heat is comparable to a mild jalapeño but will vary with weather conditions. A bold spark in salsas, kebabs, stir-fries or the pickle jar. Sister to the red Cherry Bomb...grow them both!

Espelette

Red Non-Bell Pepper
80 days to Red

I got the seeds for these very special peppers from John Swenson, seed saver, who got them from France. Espelette is a protected pepper variety in France and is very rare in the U.S. The peppers taste good fresh, but really shine when they are dried and ground into paprika. The paprika has a very mild heat to it, along with a vibrant smoky, sweet flavor. The peppers are bright red when ripe, narrow and about 6 inches long.
