The Anaheim Chili, a mildly-spicy variety, is characterised by its shiny, dark-lime green skin and elongated shape. It was first grown by Emilio C. Ortega in 1894. Through a fire-roasting process, Emilio preserved the peppers by stripping away their skins, followed by deseeding and rinsing prior to canning. Ortega, his business, currently produces canned Anaheim chillies alongside other products.
The Anaheim Chilli's outer skin can be tough when unripe and must be peeled prior to roasting, either from an open flame, a grill, or a stovetop griddle. Once charred, the skin can be easily removed once cooled.
Heat Level (Scoville Rating)
Mild (500-2,500 SHU)
Anaheim chillies reach a maximum length of 25cm and a maximum width of 5cm, ripening from green to red. The pods are used more often when green.
Also known as
California Chile, Magdalena and Chile Seco del Norte (when fully matured and dried)
Anaheim Chilli seeds should be sown as early as possible during spring to capitalise on the plant's rapid growth rate, ideally in an area with ample warmth and sunlight. Reaching a maximum height of nearly 1 meter, Anaheim Chilli is a large and bushy plant that necessitates rich soil to ensure optimal production of sizeable pods. Keeping the soil moist is necessary to ensure an abundance of large pods. Though well-suited for potted culture, support may be required due to its substantial stature. Pods are usually ready to pick from about 80 days after sowing.

Let customers speak for us
From the moment the cute seed box arrives at your door, until the seedling pop up to say hello...they never disappoint. I've purchased a few different boxes of seeds and know they'll not be my last! Thank you 🐞🌸
I already have baby craspedia seedlings and can't wait to see them grow. I bought a couple of craspedia plants last year and they produce the most lovely yellow pom poms. They look great dotted in three's around the house and I also use them when I make dried wreaths.
This was gifted to my mum for her birthday and she loves it. You've got everything you need for flower pressing, including all instructions.
Nicely packaged and fast delivery
One of our favourites in the range. Balanced subtle tones, good burn time and will definitely buy again. Matt

I am happy to give a 5 star review for Bishy Barnabee’s Cottage Garden Flower and Herb Box.
I loved receiving the beautiful package of seeds, with some dried flowers enclosed and not an ounce of plastic in sight!
All thoughtfully eco friendly wrapped.
The delivery was super quick and I’m working my way through sewing the seeds, on the monthly instructions contained on each packet.
I think any of the seed boxes would make a beautiful gift or why not treat yourself!
I’ll certainly be buying more as I expand my cut flower garden 🌸🐞
