About Anaheim

Green Anaheim chile peppers are medium-sized, elongated and curved pods, averaging 15 to 25 centimeters in length, and have a conical shape with slight tapering towards the non-stem end. The semi-thick skin is smooth with deep linear indentations running the length of the pod and has a glossy and waxy sheen over dark to light green hues. Underneath the skin, the pale green flesh is crisp, aqueous, and faintly striated, encasing a central cavity filled with white membranes and many round, cream-colored seeds. Raw Green Anaheim chile peppers have a crunchy consistency with a bright, slightly fruity, and peppery taste with a moderate spice that does not linger on the palate. When cooked, the pepper develops a smoky, sweet, and tangy flavor.

Botanically classified as Capsicum annuum, Green Anaheim chile peppers are the young and mild, unripe stage of a pepper native to New Mexico and is a member of the Solanaceae or nightshade family. Known by many different names depending on the region it is grown in, Green Anaheim chiles may also be found labeled as California pepper, Magdalena pepper, Hatch peppers, and New Mexico peppers. It is important to note that Green Anaheim chile peppers can vary in levels of heat depending on its growing climate, soil, and amount of sunlight received during cultivation. Peppers from Anaheim, California are known to be milder, ranging 500 to 2,500 SHU on the Scoville scale, while peppers grown in New Mexico can become as hot as a Jalapeno which ranges 2,500 to 8,000 SHU.

Green Anaheim chile peppers received national recognition as one of the first canned products to have been developed in California in the late 19th century. Farmer Emilio Ortega was enthralled by the mild flavor of the Green Anaheim chile peppers and brought seeds from New Mexico to begin cultivation of the pepper in his home garden in Southern California. In 1894 he learned how to fire roast and preserve the peppers in canned form, and developed the first commercial food company in Anaheim, California, known as The Ortega Chile Packaging Company.

Green Anaheim chile peppers are an excellent source of vitamins A and C, which are antioxidants that can help protect the body from external environmental aggressors and boost the immune system. The peppers also contain vitamins B6 and K, potassium, and fiber.
