Mulato or ancho, what’s the difference. What is the definition of mulato? And there are three different grades of ancho(i.e., mediano or primero, but what distinguishes between the grades. We are growing poblano peppers and wish to dry and sell them. Kind regards,
A mulato is an extremly dark variety–almost black–of dried poblano. Ancho is much lighter in color. The grading is done after drying and the grades merely reflecst the quality of the pods, rated by size, blemishes, etc. Poblanos are dried after they reach their mature color, red or dark red.
