The ‘Poblano’ pepper is a very versatile pepper that can be harvested at 3 stages. It is a great container pepper. Immature (dark green) and grilled, dark red for a bit more heat and dark purple shriveled a bit before picking are the 3 harvesting stages. The latter is used for fully drying, powdering and making ‘mole’ sauces. It is a mild heat/spice pepper somewhere below the heat of a ‘Jalapeno’ pepper. It has a great flavor that stands out from other peppers.
