Also known as a Poblano pepper, the Ancho Gigantea is one of the more commonly used peppers in Mexico known to add a fantastic mild flavor to any cuisine!

This short plant will grow up to 2 ft. tall and produce many 4" heart-shaped peppers that will continue to grow if they are picked frequently. Some of these peppers grow twisted with shiny skin and a wrinkly texture. They change colors from dark green to red, but you can pick these peppers at either stage.

With a sweet and smoky flavor, and a mild heat reaching up to 3,000 SHUs, the Ancho Gigantea is a pepper you don't want to miss out on. When dark green, these peppers are used for stuffing and roasting, as well as for sauces and salsas. 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.
