The Anaheim pepper is one of those peppers that’s big enough to be very versatile in its usage. Plus, its mild heat makes it a family favorite. Nearly everyone can take the small punch given by the Anaheim pepper − in fact, most enjoy its slight kick! The Anaheim is normally a very mild hot pepper, only tipping the Scoville scale at around 1,000 to 3,000 Scoville heat units. That makes the Anaheim normally at least eight times milder than the average jalapeño. Pods are 7-1/2" long and 2" wide on productive 30” plants with good foliage cover for the fruit. These heirloom peppers originated in New Mexico in 1913, but were later brought to the Anaheim, California area so that's how they got their name.
