It is said that the Chilhaucle Armarillo is possibly the rarest chilli in Mexico originating from Oaxca. This variety has a unique orange-yellow colour and tastes sweet, tangy and citrusy with smoky undertones. We love it! The skin is a little tough so this one is best roasted, made into a mole or dried and blitzed into a powder. Interestingly ‘Chilhaucle’ means ancient or old implying its been around for a long long time. The fruit are trapezoidal in shape and are around 8-10cms long and 2cms wide. There are two other varieties that come from the same region that have a similar name. The Chilhuacle Negro (Brown) and the Chilhuacle Rojo (Red). The Chilhuacle Amarillo grows up to 4 feet tall and has a lovely canopy like growth pattern. So get your hands on this treasure – you wont be disappointed.
