Chilli Anaheim – 15 Seeds

£2.00

The Anaheim chilli can often be confused with being a sweet pepper due to its shape and size, as it somewhat resembles a Thor sweet pepper. The chilli gets its name from Anaheim in California.

The chilli matures from green to red, but most are often used when still green. The pods have a thick, waxy, waterproof skin that should be removed before use.

Traditionally the method is to roast them either over an open fire, a BBQ or a gas hob until the skins are burnt and blistered, then seal them in a bag to let the heat further loosen the skin. When cooled, simply peel back the burnt skin away from the flesh. They are also a great chilli to be used stuffed as an alternative to the Poblano.

Sow a few seeds into a tray in late January to May and cover lightly with seed compost.  Either use a heated propagator or pop the seed tray into an enclosed plastic bag and seal and place on a windowsill.  Once the seedling has produced two true leaves (second set of leaves) they can be transplanted into individual pots.  Try and maintain around 20-25 degrees while young plants.

As the plant grows, transplant into as large a pot as allows, this will determine the size of the plant.  Once the plant has flowered and has started to produce small chillies, it will benefit from a feed of either comfrey tea or tomato feed.  Chillies dislike irregular watering as this will sometimes cause blossom end rot (the base of the chilli/pepper rots)
