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