Pepper - Ancho Poblano - Capsicum annum
Tender Annual High-yielding bushes produce 3"-6" heart shaped peppers that are dark green and ripen to a deep red or brown. Poblano peppers are a favorite for stuffing because of their thick walls and mild flavor. They are called Ancho when dried. These peppers are a favorite for stuffing and for making chilli relleno
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.
Harvesting and Storage: Harvest the first fruits early to encourage continued production through the season. Cut (don't pull) the fruit from the stems. Harvestable from the green stage through the color changes.
