What is special about Hatch chile?
The famous Hatch Chile flavor of these peppers is said to come from the special growing conditions in the Hatch region of New Mexico – including the soil and the climate. If you ever have a chance to try Hatch Green Chile from the Hatch region in New Mexico, you're in for a treat! The smoky, buttery deliciousness of roasted Hatch chile is hard to beat. But, don't worry, you don't have to garden in New Mexico to enjoy the flavor – these Hatch Chile varieties, wherever grown, still taste amazing!
Technically, if you don't grow these Hatch Chile varieties in the Hatch region, then you can't call them Hatch chiles. However, these are the same seeds that New Mexico growers plant, and we think they still taste great no matter where you grow them around the world! Since many people do not live in New Mexico, it's hard to even get Hatch chile! So why not spread the Chile love and grow Hatch chile varieties where ever you live?
Is all Hatch Chile hot?
Fresh Red Hatch Chile is highly perishable so you won't likely find it in stores, that's why it's great to grow your own Red Hatch Chile plants so you can enjoy the smokey intense flavor of fresh-roasted red chile from your garden! It's a summer highlight!
