Chimayo Native New Mexico Chile
The Chimayo Chile is one of the chiles native to Northern New Mexico, recognized by the Slow Food Ark of Taste as a culinary treasure. It has become rare as the number of growers in Chimayo has declined.
Truly worth conserving and promoting, this chile has become our hot pepper of choice. It has a moderate, pleasant heat that enhances rather than overwhelms other flavors.
Extremely productive plants are easy to grow, too!
The Chimayo was first recorded by Spanish explorers in 1598. Help conserve this ancient variety ~ you will love it!
Minimum 15 seeds per packet.
