Chilhuacle Negro Chilli
‘Ancient and rare chilli from Mexico ‘
Chilhuacle Negro Chilli originates from the Valley of Oaxaca in southern Mexico. Chilhuacle means ‘ancient chilli’ in Nahualt, which is the language of the Aztec people.
The plant grows well in a pot to around 40 cm in height. Ease to grow and maintain.
The pods start off a dark green and end up a dark brown colour, when they are mature.

You would also be able to use this unique chilli in any cooking, in a salsa, a sauce or dried. When you dry the chillies they get an amazing sweet and smoky flavour, therefore a great chilli for powder.
