The Anaheim pepper is a mild heirloom variety of the New Mexico chili pepper. The name "Anaheim" derives from Emilio Ortega, a farmer who brought the seeds to the Anaheim, California, area in the early 1900s. These peppers are also called California chiles. Vigorous bushy upright plants grow to 24-30 in., and produce medium hot fruits that have medium thick, dark green & red flesh. They are good canned, dried or fried.

Start seed indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost. A heat mat helps to speed up the germination process. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 65-85 degrees. Peppers generally have long growing seasons and grow slowly during cool temperatures. Delay transplanting until your soil has thoroughly warmed up in the spring. A week before transplanting time, harden off plants by exposing them to an increasing number of hours outdoors each day. Peppers are less cold tolerant than tomatoes.
