De Arbol chilli seeds. The De Arbol (C. Annuum) chilli or Chile De Arbol (as it is called in Spanish - tree chile) is a heirloom Mexican variety that is one of the goto Mexican chilli varieties for spicing things up. It is also called Rat's tail chile. A beautiful and hardy plant that is a big producer of cayenne type chillies that hand from the branches. The heat on these chillies is around 15,000 - 30,000 SHU, so a medium chilli in our books, but ideal for adding just that touch of spice to stews and soups. Pods dry well and produce a great lovely red chilli powder, but can also be used fresh in cooking.
