The Greenhouse,

is about growing matters, focusing on my greenhouse and potager. I grow mainly vegetables, herbs and spices but flowers have their given place too. From seed to table, this is the nursery for my living food, we cook a lot of delicious food and I say a potager is the cook’s best friend. The greenhouse makes it possible to grow essential, colourful, warmth loving fruit and vegetables even in this climate such as tomatoes and chillies. My main blog is Tyras Trädgård/Tyra's Garden.

Poblano Ancho Gigantea

Poblano, the mexican in my greenhouse.

This Pepper from Mexico Ancho Gigantea, beautiful dark green almost black usually called Poblano. I bought my heirloom seeds at Plants of Distinction (UK), but you can find heirlooms at Rare seeds, Amishland,Cherry Gal… the list is long.

This chili pepper is not at all hot and you can use it for 'filled peppers' when it is green and for salsas when green or later when it has turned into brilliant red. I prefer it raw and to eat it like an apple, the crunching sound of this pepper is....great.

Den här härliga chilipepparen Ancho Gigantea är inte alls het och den har en underbar 'grön' smak, skalet är relativt tunt och det gillar jag. Den går fint att använda till fyllda paprikor men jag tycker det är lite synd att tillaga den. Den 'krunschar' knakar superskönt när man sätter tänderna i den. Så mitt tips är ät den som ett äpple. Poblano kallar de den i Mexico

Have a great day all you wonderful garden bloggers!

Hi Tyra

I have also grown this Mexican poblano and I did fill it with good things and then in the oven. Just like "usual" pepper and it tasted really great, with the heath of the pepper!

Have a great day Tyra!

Hei Tyra.

Har du varme på i drivhuset ditt hele vinteren?
Det har kommet snø her oppe nå, og hagesesongen er definitivt forbi.
