De Arbol means “tree like” in Spanish. The plant has thick, upright, woody stems and the chile itself is narrow, curved and bright red in color. Believed to be closely related to the Pequin, the De Arbol is thin fleshed, with tannic, smoky, grassy flavor and searing heat. De Arbol Powder is made from grinding the whole De Arbol Pepper seeds and stem. This chile has a heat range of 7.5 on the heat scale of 1-10. De Arbol is comparable to a Cayenne Pepper. Approx. Scoville heat units 15,000 – 30,000.
Suggested Use: De Arbol is a staple in southwest kitchens. Add some heat to your next salsa, Mexican dish, stew or chili. Add directly to recipes when a boost of flavor and heat are desired.
