The roasting blackens and loosens the skins without significantly cooking the insides. You peel the skins when you get home.
They do that at the Whole Foods in Virginia Beach with Hatch chiles flown in. Not worth it to me, since I grow Anaheims. Or Portsmouths, I suppose

They are the same variety of chile pepper grown in different places. If that's what you mean by cultivar, then yes.

I've got Anaheim chilis in my local supermarkets and they look nothing like the Hatch chilis I bought in Santa Fe. (Other than the resemblance all chilis have.)

Really? Because the Hatch chiles on The Hatch Chile Store website look exactly like the Anaheim chiles I just harvested from my garden.

GG, nice harvest (I saw on the harvest thread), nice nice nice! We went to the market where there are produce sellers. Only three farms were selling produce. I had a choice of poblanos, hot banana peppers, half sharp banana peppers, green or red bell, jalapeno peppers, so my son and I bought the half sharp banana peppers, and the poblanos peppers. Not an annaheim pepper to be found! We made the cheese filled, bacon wrapped peppers. Peeled the half sharps and didn't peel the poblanos. We liked them both. Both were medium hot, poblanos had more green pepper flavor, they were very good. If I lived near you GG, I'd buy some annaheims from you!
