Yet another outstanding product from Mexico’s Oaxacan valley. This chilli is medium-hot to taste and deep red in colour. Perfect for red moles and has hints of dry cherries and anise.
An ancient and rare chilli grown only in the Canada valley of Oaxaca. Like all chilhuacles, this chilli varies in shape from rounded balls to broad-shouldered and tapered. Not traditional but this chilli also makes an amazing paprika once ground.
All chilhuacles are slowly falling out of favour and are slowly disappearing due to their high production costs. Spice Trekkers are making a concerted effort to import and popularize these chilli’s to contribute to the survival of these truly ancient chilli’s.
