Hello, Everyone! I just have to cross-post a blog I did on my own blog site. It’s about peppers and it’s pretty neat. So…here it is:
Hello Garden Gals and Guys! I was meandering in my garden this morning just looking at everything and I noticed that one of my pepper plants has peppers in various phases of growth. It’s kind of neat to look at, so I thought I would share it with you.
This is a poblano/ancho pepper plant. It’s a chile pepper variety. When used green it’s referred to as poblano. When it is allowed to ripen to red and dried, it is referred to as an ancho. It’s mildly hot, with a rich and mellow flavor. They were first cultivated in Mexico City and grow to be quite large, so you need to space these plants at least three to four feet apart.
OK on to the pictures.
You see to the left the pepper starting to form. They begin a bit tinier than this, but there were no tinier buds on this plant. Bummer.
