  • Chilhuacle Amarillo-(Capsicum annuum)-This is a variety from Oaxaca, Mexico
  • There are two other varieties in that region that have a similar name. These three peppers make up the heart and soul of Oaxacan cooking especially when making Mole dishes. The Chilhuacle chiles should be roasted and peeled first as the outer skin can be a little tough. The Chilhuacle Amarillo has a very sweet citrus like flavor with smoky undertones. The fruit grows about an inch in diameter and 6 inches long. It ripens from green to orange yellow. The heat level is close to a Jalapeno. They are good for stuffing but roast and peel first. Also make a fantastic pepper powder! The Chilhuacle Amarillo chile plants grow up to 4 feet tall.
    Growing Peppers:
    Peppers, like tomatoes, grow in well-drained fertile soil. Almost all peppers have the same requirements for successful growth. Plant them in good, well-drained, fertile soil – and make sure they get lots of sunlight and a good inch of water per week. In many ways, they mimic the same requirements needed for growing great tomatoes.
GREAT IN CONTAINER.
Sow seeds indoors ¼" deep. Peppers germinate best in warm soil, so gentle bottom heat may be helpful until seedlings emerge. Wait to transplant outdoors until soil is warm.

At Planting Time:
We plant all of our peppers with a good shovel full of compost in the planting hole, and then give them a good dose of compost tea every few weeks for the first 6 weeks of growth. We also mulch around each of our pepper plants with a good 1 to 2″ thick layer of compost.
All pepper varieties are Heirloom and/or OP(Open Pollinated.) and Organically Grown
Peppers often like to take their sweet time germinating. They can be up in a week, and some will take almost a month. Even with paper towel germination testing, they can take long. I am not sure why, but it is a normal occurrence. So plan and make sure you start them early enough! Also, remember they like heat to germinate so make sure you have a heating mat or something to keep the soil warm. Placing them up on top of the fridge often works too since it is normally warmer up there.
Peppers do very well grown in pots.
