Yavapai, Arizona, United States
Frost Free Season: 143 - 163 days
Soil Texture: Sand
Garden Size: Large - More than 1,600 square feet (40' x 40')
Sun Exposure: More than 8 hours per day

Extra long thick walled chilis, great for roasting ,stuffing, and freezing. Very little trouble with pests ( we had a grasshopper epidemic the first year I planted this variety, and the grasshoppers ate everything else first before they started on these). Must start indoors 6-8 weeks before frost-free date for best yield.

We first grew these last year (2008) and are growing again this year. This is similar to an anaheim, but bigger. Very good production. These were mild Hot only and great for Chili Rellenos or stuffing with meat.
