We harvest our chilies when they are firm and just beginning to turn red and dry them in a traditional way by hanging them in a low-humidity, mildly hot environment. After drying, we sort our chilies based on size and pack them. We remove any pods that are soft, overripe or wrinkled apart from cases of pepper varieties that have natural wrinkles to offer you the best chilies.
