Ancho Hot Pepper (Heirloom, 80 Days)

Heirloom. This is the primary Poblano-type pepper. It is nearly the size of a regular bell pepper but flattened and pointed at the end. An attractive shiny green with a thick flesh which makes it ideal for stuffing. Pungency is generally quite mild and green although it will eventually redden.

20 seeds  

PLANTING

Caspsicum annuum var. 'Poblano'

Germination: 10-14 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 75-85ºF. Cooler soil temperatures slows germination time.

Seed Sowing Depth: ¼” deep

Starting Indoors:  8-10 weeks before last frost. Sow in flats/cells/pots. Provide 75-85ºF soil temperatures. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water soluble fertilizer (diluted to ¼ of suggested measurement). Transplant seedlings 18-24” apart after last frost.

Sowing Outdoors: Not recommended, especially in northern areas

How much does a packet plant: 20-25 foot single row  

Harvest: Use a sharp instrument to cut the peppers from the plant. Pick the first fruits when they reach usable size, this helps accelerate the growth of the other peppers on the plant. Leave some peppers on the plant to mature so they can change color and sweeten up.

Tips: Pinch-off early flowers or tiny fruit on any seedlings before placing them in the ground. Plant in fertile soil, amend with composted if needed. It helps to use row cover early in the season, giving the plants extra warmth, especially in the north. Side dress when flowers begin to form.

Whoppers!

Largest pepper plant I’ve ever grown. The fruit is large and fairly thick-walled so it is easy to roast and peel. We have frozen fresh, roasted and frozen and roasted and canned them. Excellent flavor. The best part is that they grow well in New England.

Wet Spring

I don’t know how to rate them because the peppers haven’t been planted outside yet. They have been under lights & fed fish emulsion. Just recently are hardening off even though they are relatively small plants.

Plants were giant, but not a lot of peppers

They were the largest pepper plants I've ever grown. Incredibly healthy, but it took forever for peppers to produce and did not get the yield I expected. Giving them another shot. Hopefully a fluke.
