Chilhuacle Amarillo-(Capsicum annuum)-This is a rare variety from Oaxca, Mexico. There are two other varieties in that region that have a similar name. The Chilhuacle Negro (Brown) and the Chilhuacle Rojo (Red). These three peppers make up the heart and soul of Oaxacan cooking especially when making Mole dishes. The Chilhuacle chiles should be roasted and peeled first as the outer skin can be a little tough. The Chilhuacle Amarillo has a very sweet citrus like flavor with smoky undertones. The fruit grows about an inch in diameter and 6 inches long. It ripens from green to orange yellow. They are good for stuffing but roast and peel first. Also make a fantastic pepper powder! The Chilhuacle Amarillo chile plants grow up to 4 feet tall.
