Also known as a Poblano pepper, this rich Mexican Poblano sets the standard for sauces, stuffing, and seasoning. The Ancho Gigantea pepper has a medium-hot flavor with 1,000 to 3,000 SHUs, with a smoky yet sweet flavor. With the Ancho Gigantea being one of the more commonly used peppers in Mexico, this is a pepper you must not miss out! When they are dark green, they can be used for stuffing and roasting. You can also let the Gigantea peppers ripen to red and be dried as ancho chiles, and those can be used to make sauces, soups, and meat seasoning. They will grow to 4” heart-shaped peppers, and the plant will grow to 2 feet tall. Also, the Ancho Gigantea pepper will continue to grow more peppers if picked frequently.
