Anaheim Peppers - Popular Chili in Southwestern Cuisine

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. Delicious as stuffed anaheim peppers in chile rellenos.
