Did you know that it is called Poblano when it is used fresh and green, and Ancho when it is dried? A popular pepper in Mexico, this Ancho Poblano pepper has many uses and is great to use for salsa, Chile powder, grilling, stir-fries, or stuffed peppers. The Ancho Poblano Plant will grow around 2 feet, and the pepper pods will look like red, smooth heart-shaped peppers when fully ripe.
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.
