Here it is! The famous Hatch Chile strain! Anaheim Chili is a meaty hot pepper that is great for stuffing. This pepper variety has a mild to medium heat for a chili pepper. Each of these plants produce an abundance of spicy chili peppers that are 5-8″ long. Anaheim Chili is great for roasting, stuffing, stews, sauces and eaten raw! A farmer back in the early 1900s bought some of these pepper seeds in Anaheim, California thus giving them the name they have today. Anaheim Chili peppers can be harvested while green or for more spiciness let them turn deep red. For more mild peppers water liberally and for hotter peppers stress the plants by only watering after they wilt slightly.
