Our Feedback
I don't normally do this (perhaps I should!) but I wanted to let you know how pleased I was with the fruit bushes,etc. They arrived this morning and after undoing the excellent packing I was impressed with how strong and healthy the plants were. I have spent a very pleasant spring day heeling everything in. So thanks once again for your prompt and efficient service - I look forward to my first crop of soft fruit this summer and for many years to come!! Regards, Lynn Cadman

For all those who think Mexican food is all about hot chillies, think again! This extremely mild Chilli Pepper is in fact the variety most widely used in Mexico and favourite for the 'national dishes' of Mole and Chilli Rellenos.

Starting off deep green in colour the fruits look very similar to a Sweet Pepper and have very little heat. As they mature they colour up first to red and then on to an almost brown colour - and by this time a little heat has built into the sweet flavour.

Often mistakingly known as the Poblano Chilli - whereas Poblano should only be the name attributed to Ancho Chillies grown in Puebla, Mexico.

These also dry well and can be ground to make a warming paprika.

Fruits are heart shaped and vary from 2"-6" (5-15 cm) in length and 2"-3" (5 - 7.5 cm) wide. The plant has a very open habit, growing to approximately 3-4 feet (90-120 cm) tall with a spread of 2-3 feet (60-90 cm).

  • Origin: Mexico.
  • Heat: Mild - approximately 1000-1500 SHUs

Mild Chilli: 1000 - 5000 SHU's

This variety will be 'on taste' at Challock Chilli Fest
