The Santa Fe Grande Pepper is heat-tolerant, prolific, and cheerful. Produces a fiesta of 2"-4" waxy, tapered peppers that ripen through the rich, vibrant colors of the Southwest, from pale green to yellow to orange to red, with sweet, mild flavor and mild heat. So mild, it’s also called Chile Guero, which translates to “blonde chili,” but you might bite into a spicier one here and there. Grill them with onions for a festive topping for chicken or beef, or use as the colorful main ingredient in salsa or a pickle jar.
