Ancho means "broad". Fat, heart-shaped 4 by 3-inch Relleno chilli. 3-foot, bushy plant. Excellent fresh, like bell pepper, but commonly dried when ripe (dark red to almost black) for Mexican cuisine. Called Poblano when used fresh. Mildly hot, distinct flavour.
Start indoors in a warm location 8-10 weeks before setting out. Sow seeds in flats or pots of the prepared mix. 1/4 inch deep and 2 inches apart. Keep soil moist but not soggy and provide a strong light source as soon as feelings have 2-3 sets of true leaves into individual pots or deep flats. Acclimate seedlings gradually to outdoor conditions when summery weather prevails, then set out 2-3 feet apart in rich, well-drained soil.
