This will be the first year growing poblano peppers for MEG’s Edible Landscapes. Poblano peppers are mild peppers that resemble a heart shape. Did you know the name of a pepper changes when it’s in a dried or smoked form? Many other peppers have different names between the fresh and dried forms too. In the case of poblano, its dried counterpart name is Ancho.
As for the pepper itself and a little history, it hails from Puebla, Mexico.
Poblanos are popular peppers in Mexican cuisine of course. One popular dish is Chile Relleno. We’re definitely going to experiment with this recipe later this summer. The peppers are roasted or charred, stuffed with cheese, dipped in an egg mixture and then lightly fried. Yum!
Stuffed poblanos seem to be the most popular way to enjoy this mild pepper. Here’s another recipe but with cream cheese. If you like cream cheese, try jalapeño poppers. Don’t forget to wrap them with bacon 😉

MEG is continuing to add new and exciting products to the lineup every year. This year, we’re adding more than half a dozen new hot and mild pepper varieties alone. We’re unveiling these over the next few weeks. It’s going to be an exciting pepper growing season for sure!
Besides adding awesome new pepper varieties to the lineup this year, have you checked our new CSA starting this Spring? We had requests for CSA memberships last year and thought “why not”? It’s a brilliant idea coupled with MEG’s tried and true method using grow bags. Our automated watering system is complimentary to each CSA package this year too! No more worrying about watering plants. We’re taking that chore off your plate. Check out the premium membership here and the basic membership here. Don’t delay, we only have 20 CSA memberships available for 2023!
Poblano peppers are a great choice for those who prefer to do without the spicy peppers. We’re looking forward to enjoying this wonderful pepper and a couple new recipes this summer.
