Mulato grew very vigorously and gave a high yield of long green/brown peppers. Flavour was bitter-sweet and pleasant, but extremely mild. Not a hint of heat. That was disapointing for me, that is why I rank them negatively.

This sort of a generic brown ancho. When dried it is a very dark brown.The fruit abot 15 X 7 cm and ripens from green. It is the smoky, licorice, aromatic flavor, as well as its chocolate-black color which gives it its appeal.
