Poblano Pepper Plants for organic Garden in Central Jersey?

Just wondering if anyone has seen Poblano pepper plants for sale at any nurseries in central Jersey (Ocean (preferably),... Mercer, middlesex, monmouth, or burlington counties)? They're one of my favorite peppers to cook with and I can't seem to find them anywhere this year. Obviously they taste better when you grow them yourself!

  1. You can try this place in Rosemont. Also, try the Rosemont Cafe for a great breakfast or lunch while you're in the area.

      Thank you MSCHOW. I just might make a daytrip out of it this weekend and try the Rosemont Cafe at the same time!

        Say hit to Janie (AKA "ChileGoddess") at Cross Country for me... :-)

          There is a place in Pittstown that has hundreds of varieties of chiles. The name escapes me but I am sure if you google it, something will come up.

      2. You can buy seeds online. little late now but i think it is called seed savers.

        1. Matt's Farm Market, on Route 71 in Belmar, has several types of chiles every year. I didn't notice Poblanos, but I wasn't looking for them. You might try a call.

            Thank you MGZ...they did have poblanos/anchos! Bought them as well as some hard to find varieties of hybrid tomatoes... Should make for some great sauces,etc. Later this summer.

              You're welcome. I'm glad you found good stuff there. We really like the place and have had nothing but good results, for years now, with their vegetables and herbs. (Admittedly, however, I am more of a "still warm off the vine with some coarse salt" guy when it comes to my heirloom tomatoes.)

          2. haven't been there this season, but have you tried Delicious Orchards in Colts Neck?

            1. Cheesequake on Rt 9 North in Old Bridge, (roughly 3 miles north of where 18 and 9 intersect) always has a pretty good variety. I usually get Serrano's. Jalapeno, and Habenero. I belive they carry Poblano.
