The most treasured pepper we grow. Young green peppers are named Poblano, while ripe peppers are named Ancho. Dried and smoked, they are used for paprika and called Mulato. The poblano (Capsicum annuum) is a mild chili pepper originating in the state of Puebla, Mexico. Large, dark green, shiny skinned peppers. Used to make Chili Rellenos in the Poblano stage when they are mild. As they ripen they are significantly hotter and become Ancho Peppers. Dried and powdered Ancho peppers are used to make Paprika, Chili Powder, or Mole. We’ve smoked these Ancho peppers using chokecherry wood to make smoked paprika.  It resulted in a unique deep smooth smoked paprika which surpassed any storebought smoked paprika. You can expect these large plants to produce heavily so plant 90 cm apart and stake plants.

Poblano peppers need full sunlight and rich, well-drained soil that has been amended with compost or well-rotted manure. Fertilize the plants about six weeks after planting. Water as needed to keep the soil moist but never soggy. A thin layer of mulch will prevent evaporation and keep weeds in check. Poblano peppers are ready to harvest when they’re10-15 cm long, approximately 65-80 days after transplanting to the garden.

Start seeds indoors 8-12 weeks before the last frost. Keep the tray in a well-lit area and bottom heat will increase the germination rate. Seeds should germinate in 14 days. Use of a row tunnel until the ground temperature is 18C is advised, when the summer heat reaches to nights of 10C or more remove the row tunnel to help with pollination. Poblano peppers are open-pollinated so plant near other plants which attracts beneficial insects.

These pepper plants take up a fair amount of room and are sturdy plants. Staking them is advised since they are heave producers. Plant at least 90 cm apart and fertilize at 6 weeks then every 3 weeks after.

Never plant them next to beans, Brassicas, or fennel. Planting with parsley, carrots, tomatoes, swiss chard or oregano.
