Note: Many of our pepper seedlings are still quite small. Consider keeping them in their pots a few more weeks before transplanting.
An heirloom chile grown for generations in the Chimayo Valley of northern New Mexico. This native strain has fantastic red chile flavor. At first it tastes sweet and then medium hot. Its great flavor is the result of hand selection over hundreds of years. The Chimayo red chile sauce is easy to make and delicious on enchiladas and burritos.
Allow the chiles to remain on the plant and mature until almost completely red. The thin skinned pods are 6" -7" long and after harvesting will dry quickly in the sun.
