PP641A - Chile de Arbol
Small, dark red chiles grow on this Mexican heirloom bush, and pack a wallop at 15,000 - 30,000 SHUs. Try Chile de Arbol pepper seeds in containers and move indoors into a greenhouse over winter, and it will come back as a perennial for several years. The thin-skinned fruits set generously on the plants, and are easy to dry. Once they are dry, they have a very long shelf life, and develop a very pleasant, hot, smoky, distinctive flavour. The chiles are borne on tall, upright plants (chile de arbol = "tree chile"), that will perform well in three to five gallon containers. Take homemade salsa to a whole new level with these wonderfully flavoured chile peppers.

How To Grow
Peppers are tropical plants that need lots of heat and attention to detail when starting them. Well grown in a warm summer, they are the gardener’s triumph. Interestingly, the hot peppers often do better in a cool summer than the large bell peppers. If the hot peppers have not coloured up fully on your plants, pull up the whole plant and hang in a warm dry area. Follow along with this handy How to Grow Peppers from seeds guide and grow spicy and sweet delight.
