Gift wrapping Options available
Ancho Pablano Pepper: One of the most popular chiles in Mexico, this mildly hot, blocky pepper is widely used for making chile rellenos and mole. Dark green turns to red when mature. Known as Poblano when fresh, Ancho when dried. Bushy, everbearing, pendant type plant. Transplant when soils are warm, spacing seedlings 12-18 inches apart. Enrich soil with mature compost. Needs warm conditions day and night to germinate and fruit well. Harvesting tip: Harvest in the green or red stage.
HOT PEPPERS: When Wilbur Scoville first devised a means to test the heat of peppers, his hottest entry then came in at 20,000 units. Habanero and Thai chilies can go as high as 60,000. Compare that to the sweet bell pepper at zero. When hot peppers are consumed, capsaicinoids bind with pain receptors in the mouth and throat that are responsible for sensing heat. Once activated by the capsaicinoids, these receptors send a message to the brain that the person has consumed something hot. The brain responds to the burning sensation by raising the heart rate, increasing perspiration and release of endorphins. Hot peppers should be eaten with caution!
