Anaheims are pretty weak; of popular hot peppers, only pepperoncini has less heat. Pelso has an amount of heat similar to Anaheim. Beaver Dam is somewhere in the neighborhood of Poblano for heat... pleasant, but not scorching. It also adds wonderful flavor to anything it is cooked with, we love it with pepper steak."Beaver Dam Pepper worked wonderfully for us this summer in our garden’s 5,000' elevation in sandy loam with 5% humidity. Heirloom" So reports grower on Fedco Seed
This looks like a good choice for me. I will hope that it is a little spicier than Anaheim. It's not that I don't appreciate the Anaheim peppers that I have grown for years. It's that I didn't even know that it was considered a hot for the first few of those years.
