Chile de Arbol

From Spanish for 'tree-like' in reference to the way the plant branches as it grows, this small, bright red pepper is an icon of Mexican culture. These peppers are dried in decorative garlands called ristras. Essential in Thai curries and burnt chili paste, these peppers mature from green to red and retain their bright color when dried.
