Chili de Arbol blends fiery heat with smoky flavors that really enhance Mexican cooking. Tall plants (up to 4 feet) bear heavy loads of slender, curved peppers all summer long. This heirloom pepper hails from Chihuahua, Mexico, and is the pepper seen most often in dried pepper strings (ristras) or wreaths because fruits retain their bright red color after drying.
