Ancho Chili Pepper History

Ancho Chili Pepper. Poblano hot peppers are a great all-purpose cooking pepper, with a fantastic rich taste. Mildly hot, distinctive rich taste. Fruits ripen from dark green to deep red.

Growing Ancho Poblano Pepper

Peppers like warmth, so wait to plant until nighttime temperatures have consistently reached 60 degrees and all danger of frost has passed. If possible, set out your peppers on a cloudy day to help reduce stress on the plants. Space the plants 12 to 20 inches apart, depending on the mature size of the variety, and set them a bit deeper than they were in their containers. Avoid adding too much nitrogen to the soil, however. Excessive nitrogen can cause the pepper plants to grow too fast, making them more susceptible to disease and less productive. Check the peppers often during periods of extreme heat and drought, when each plant can easily take a gallon of water a day.
