These are the chiles that I got this year:

I had ordered 2 of the De Agua because they were so delicious in the salad we had in Oaxaca. But Cross-Country had a crop failure for them this year. I’ll try again next year. de agua = [medium; 3 to 5 inches long by 1 to 1.5 inches wide; medium thick flesh; matures from green to red; pendant pods; green leaves; 6 to 12 inches tall; Early Season; Uses: Mexican Cuisine, Prolific; from Mexico; from Oaxaca region; C.annuum.]
