In Spanish, the name means “tree-like,” perhaps because of its woody stems. Other names for the De Arbol are pico de pájaro (bird’s beak) and cola de rata (rat’s tail), because of the long, slender shape of the pepper. These peppers are green when sold fresh and red when dried. This hot pepper is primarily used to make cayenne pepper seasoning. Heat is 6-7 out of 10 on the Scoville heat scale.
