The Ancho Grande Pepper is named for its size—
ancho is wide, grande is big. That’s when it’s dark red. While it’s still dark green, it’s called Poblano, which is named for a town in Mexico. And when it matures fully to dark brown, the name is Mulato. Vigorous, leafy plants produce grande amounts of tapered heart-shaped 4"-8" fruit with a mellow, smoky flavor and a little bit of heat. This fleshy, thick-skinned pepper is traditionally used for chiles rellenos and mole sauce, but you can probably think of a few more uses while you’re studying for the quiz about its name.
