The application of Anaheim Chillies in cooking is endless. Flavour is sweet to mild and really comes to the fore when baked, grilled or pan fried. Scoville units range between 500 and 2500. It makes a great stuffing chilli and pairs very well with cheese. Some people believe these are best cooked by fire grilling until the skin is charred and then removing the skin. Its better to eat when still green, since the fruits loose a lot of moisture when they start to turn red/brownish.
Plants are very easy to grow and yields quick. Medium sized plants will give you fruits that will get longer than 20 cm’s.
