A popular, medium sized plant from Mexico. It is named after the town of Xalapa. One of the more milder and widely eaten chillies.
Plant in a protected spot out of fierce sunlight and wind in a well-drained but moist soil. May need some support when it ages.
Chillies form an integral part of many Asian and Latin American dishes along with some European, African and North American. Indeed over time most cuisines have added this fiery little fruit into their recipes. There are many forms that vary in colour, shape, flavour and of course heat. This is a popular chilli with a mild flavour that is widely used in Mexican dishes.
