De Arbol Orange
De Arbol Orange originates from Mexico and is used fresh, dried or powdered in the Mexican cuisine.
It is a beautiful chilli pepper that grows to about 35 cm in a pot and easy to grow. An amazing producer & will keep on producing a good sized chilli the whole season. If you live in a cool climate, this chilli is a good choice. It goes through the Australian winter with temperatures down to 7 degrees Celsius and still looks good.
The pods are 4-5 cm long and 1 cm wide and they start creamy white and end up a warm orange colour, when they are mature.
All in all De Arbol Orange is great chilli variety and a real beauty.
