This small, slender, curved, bright red pepper is a popular pepper to use in many cuisines! The Chile De Arbol Pepper is typically dried and produces the best flavor when you dry them. The dried Chiles De Arbol mean “tree chili” in Spanish because of its long wood stem and include several nicknames such as bird’s beak chilies or rat’s tail chilies. The pepper grows to two to four inches long, and the Chile De Arbol plant grows over 5 feet tall. It matures from green to bright red and retains their color after drying. Delivering a quick heat punch, this pepper has fruity, smoky, and nutty tones, which makes it a great addition to add in salsas, sauces, soups, and stews. Try this in your next meal for delicious flavor!
WARNING: Plants adjust to small, gradual changes in their environment better than sudden shifts, which is what the hardening off process is all about. Just as you get burned when you bare your untanned skin to the sun, leaves of plants started indoors will develop pale, sunburned patches if they are suddenly exposed to too much sun. The story has a happier ending when you introduce seedlings to bright light and sheltered breezes gradually, over a period of one to three weeks.
