Capsicum annuum
CHILLI-ANAHEIM originating in Mexico and established in America (Anaheim) in 1894 by Emilio Ortega.  Also called California Red, Hatch, Chile Colorado, Magdalena, & New Mexico peppers depending on the stage they are picked.

Thick outer skin makes them great for roasting, stuffing, grilling, eating raw, drying, and grinding to a powder.  They have a mild peppery flavour, SHU from 500 to 2,500, long and slender appearance (roughly 20cm), will change from green to red as they mature.

The dried green chilli is called (just to confuse you) Verde del Norte, Chile de la tierra, or seco del Norte and when the red chilli is dried it is called California red or Colorado pepper.

They are hottest when red but vary in heat depending on where and how they are grown.  High in vitamin A, C, B6 and K to boost your immune system.

Ideally start indoors and plant out when the temperature and soil has warmed up enough, usually after a last frost if you live in that kind of climate.

If your soil is poor or too clayey then add sand or mature compost to improve your changes of success.   They require water but don’t over water so make sure your soil drains nicely. Relatively easy to grow and maintain.  Prick fruit regularly to increase yields.

How to grow Anaheim Chilli

To grow Anaheim chilli peppers, you will need to follow these steps:

  1. Choose a sunny location to plant your seeds or seedlings. Anaheim chilli peppers require at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day.
  2. Prepare the soil by mixing in organic matter, such as compost, to improve drainage and add nutrients. The ideal pH range for Anaheim chilli peppers is between 6.0 and 7.0.
  3. Plant your seeds or seedlings in the soil, spaced about 30 cm apart. If planting seeds, keep the soil moist and warm until germination occurs, which usually takes 7-14 days.
  4. Water the plants regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.
  5. Fertilise the plants every 4-6 weeks with a balanced fertiliser, such as a 10-10-10 or 20-20-20 mixture.
  6. Provide support for the plants, such as a trellis or stake, as they grow taller.
  7. Harvest the chillies when they are fully ripe, which is typically when they turn red or orange.
