Anaheim Green Chilis

Wendy Mulligan added on July 14, 2017 | Answered

I'm growing Anaheim's for roasted green chilis. The small, immature fruit are turning red. I've grown them before and never had this happen. These were purchased plants and may be a slightly different variety than I've had in the past. They get plenty of water and fertilizer. I'm disappointed and stumped.

As green Anaheim chiles turn red, the flavor moves from grassy earthy notes to a sweeter more complex flavor. Red Anaheim chiles deliver a medium sweet heat, a flavor which is enhanced by roasting.
