Heart-shaped peppers are 7-10cm (3-4") long with a mildly pungent and slightly sweet taste. In its fresh form (called "poblano") it is a very dark, glossy green and is used roasted and stuffed for rellenos (remove skin after roasting). When poblano peppers are dried and smoked, they're known as Mulato. When reddish-brown and dried (called ancho) it is used to make chili powder and mole sauce. Ancho pepper seeds produce plants with lots of high quality, dark-green peppers that ripen to red. 1,000 - 2,000 SHU's. As pepper plants go, Ancho can get fairly large, so provide ample root space in containers that are three to five gallons or bigger.
