Growing Chile Seeds in Japan

Green Chile Seeds grown in Japan

We were excited to get these photos from one of our seed customers, Ryoichi A., in a small village of rural Osaka, Japan.

They have been growing our NuMex Heritage Big Jims and other chiles in their beautiful fields. They recently ordered our Aji Limo Lemon Drop Pepper seeds, Serrano Seeds, Poblano Seeds, Red Cherry Hot Seeds, Carolina Reaper Seeds (the hottest pepper in the world!), Tabasco SeedsNuMex Trick or Treat Habanero seeds (no heat), White Bhut Jolokia seeds, Peach Bhut Jolokia seeds, Yellow Jalapeno seeds, and Yellow Carolina Reaper seeds. Wow, we sure would love to see their pepper fields in person someday! For now, we can enjoy these gorgeous photos of their plants...

Check out all of the photos of their beautiful fields in Osaka, Japan, it’s so wonderful to see people growing our New Mexican chiles around the world!

Ryoichi sent us all of these photos and sadly wrote that their fields were damaged by a typhoon last year. But this year, four farmers started growing our NM chiles, and they hope to get a lot more chile this year. We love the resilience of vegetable growers! Never give up!

Best wishes to Ryoichi and the other farmers growing chiles in Japan!
