The Chile de Arbol pepper, Spanish for tree chili, is a small but spicy Mexican pepper that is a bright red color when mature. Although the Chile de Arbol pepper may not be as popular as its close cousin the Cayenne pepper, this slim pepper is very versatile. Chile de Arbol peppers can be used fresh, dried, or powdered. They are one of the peppers used to make Cholula Hot Sauce and many other delicious hot sauces. The Chile de Arbol pepper has a medium heat level as it ranges from 15,000 to 30,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU), which is hotter than the Jalapeno pepper, but not quite as hot at the Thai pepper.

The taste of the Chile de Arbol is described as slightly nutty with a hint of smokiness. Because the Chile de Arbol pepper is not quite as spicy as the Cayenne pepper, these peppers can be enjoyed by those who are looking for a family-friendly pepper with a medium spice level. The nutty, smoky flavor provides a delicious flavor to hot sauces or salsas. They are slim and curved, only growing to two to three inches in length.

    Excellent pepper seeds

    Posted by PepperHead from Philly on 11th May 2018

    I am big into the mild peppers that taste really delicious and this is definitely one of them. The seats were delivered only a few days after I order them and all arrived in great condition. I cannot wait to grow these delicious peppers. For those who don’t know, they have delicious flavor and the heat level that most people can handle. I use them for making my own salsa and two lately spice up some foods that I make at home.
