The poblano pepper is a popular Mexican chili pepper, very dark green in color, ripening to dark red or brown. They are mild, large and are heart-shaped.
Poblano peppers need full sunlight and rich, well-drained soil that has been amended with compost or well-rotted manure. Water as needed to keep the soil moist but never soggy
There are a number of poblano uses in the kitchen. Since they’re so sturdy, poblano peppers are ideal for stuffing. You can stuff them with nearly anything you like including cream cheese, seafood, or any combination of beans, rice, and cheese. (Think chili rellenos!) Poblano peppers are also delicious in chili, soups, stews, casseroles, or egg dishes. Really, the sky is the limit. Poblano peppers are frequently dried. In this form, they are known as ancho peppers and are considerably hotter than fresh poblanos.
Poblano peppers are ready to harvest when they’re 4 to 6 inches (10-15 cm.) long
