Costeno is very hard to find hot chile from the Oaxaca region. It produces chile pods that mature from green to bright red that are about 3.5" long by .75" wide at the shoulder. The flesh is thin and perfect for drying. It is often used in Mexican dishes to make red sauces. The plant grows between 18" and 24 inches tall.
All seeds sold were grown in 2013 for the 2014 planting season.
