Chiles rellenos, we'd take you over Disneyland any day! Thanks, Anaheim!
Very productive, 2 1/2' tall plants yield dozens of 6" long, skinny fruits that have a distinct flavor (brought out well by roasting and/or combining with eggs!) and vary in heat from mild to mildly hot. Pick often for best production. Open-pollinated. 80 days.
Seeds grown by Green Team Farm in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Indigenous people in modern day Mexico domesticated chiles from their wild crop ancestor the Chiltepin thousands of years ago, adapting it into so many unique and delicious varieties. When the European colonizers came, they took chiles back to Europe, referring to them as peppers because of their spicy flavor, which reminded them of peppercorns. Now chiles are beloved and cultivated by cultures all over the world, and despite the devastating legacy of colonization, the descendants of their original seed stewards continue to persist and cultivate them today.
