Chile de Auga Hot Pepper
Heirloom, Organic Seed
80 days. Chile de Agua is an old Mexican heirloom from Oaxaca, Mexico — having grown in the region for nearly three centuries. The pepper has about the same heat as a jalapeno, but with much more flavor. The conical shaped fruit is about 4 inches long, tapering to a pointed tip and grows upward on the plant. The flesh is meaty, flavorful and spicy with the white membranes containing the heat. In Oaxaca, these chiles are often fire roasted and stuffed with meat and cheese or sliced in strips and sauteed with onions. Fully ripe peppers are orange to red in color. Grown from organic seed stock.
