Capsicum Poblano, Ancho (USDA Organic) HOT Pepper, Capsicum 'Poblano Ancho', is a very popular hybrid chile pepper from Mexico. The medium hot, broad-shouldered fruits are often used for making chile rellenos, drying, sauces, and mole.

They turn from dark green to dark red when mature. Known as 'Poblano' when fresh and 'Ancho' when dried, this 'Poblano Ancho' plant produces a good yield of heart-shaped hot peppers.

This plant has green stems and white flowers, and it is often dried and ground to make chili powder. Being wrinkled and thick fleshed, Poblano measures about four inches long and two to three inches wide.
Capsicum refers to a wide variety of tropical pepper plants with the genus of the same name. The name is perhaps derived from the Latin "capsa" or box for the pod-like fruit. They are also frequently used both chopped and raw in salads, or cooked in stir-fries or other mixed dishes.

They can be sliced into strips and fried, roasted whole or in pieces, or chopped and incorporated into salsas or other sauces. Capsicum is a relative of the tomato and requires similar growing conditions.
