The northern New Mexico town of Chimayo is famous for its red chile sauce made from this heirloom variety. More accurately classified as a warm pepper than a hot one, Chimayo’s rich sweet flavor stays in the foreground. 3-6” peppers ripen early, making it a good choice for short season regions & climate challenges. Selected by Slow Food’s “Ark of Taste” as a threatened American food tradition.
Culture: Seeds germinate at 80 degrees, and young plants are very frost-sensitive, so start indoors in March or April for best results.
Approx. 60 seeds per packet
Grown in Potter Valley, California
