Very popular in western Mexico, De Arbol chiles are thought to have originated in Oaxaca or Jalisco. The name translates to "small tree" or "tree like", which is exactly what these slender, erect multi-branched with thin light green foliage and tapered pendant chiles (3 X 3/8 inch) resemble. In Mexico they are also called "bird's beak".
Grows 38-48 inches tall. Light green pods turning dark red. Plant spaced 16-18 inches apart, in rows 3-4 feet apart, or in a 3 gallon pot for an indoor house plant. C.annuum.
