Grown


Our poblano chiles are cultivated in the volcano-enriched soils of Puebla. After harvest, the soil is rested for three years before it again grows chiles.

Hand Picked


One by one, each poblano chile is individually hand-selected for quality. For Ancho Reyes Verde, the chiles are harvested earlier, while green. For Ancho Reyes Original, the chiles are harvested later, once they’ve matured and turned red.
