Pepper - Anaheim - Capsicum anuum
Tender Annual This historic chili was developed over a hundred years ago by Dr. Fabian Garcia. This chili was selected by Dr. Garcia to have a milder, fresher, flavor than most chilis, with thick meaty walls, and large peppers up to 8" long. This is a very popular chili in southwestern cuisine and you will see it roasted, fresh, dried, and canned. It is most often used when it is dark green, but it will become hotter and turn bright red as it matures.
Soil and Water: Peppers require deeply worked, well-drained soil with plenty of added organic matter and a pH of 6.0-6.8. Water deeply, but don't over water.
Planting and Growing: Start seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before the last frost. Stake to keep fruit off the ground and mulch for disease and weed control.
