Anaheim Pepper Seeds
The granddaddy of all future New Mexico green chile pod types! The Anaheim pepper was originally known as New Mexico No. 9. It was developed in 1913 by Dr. Fabian Garcia at New Mexico State University. He was seeking a chile pepper that was bigger, fleshier, and milder. Dr. Garcia later moved to California in the 1920s and started growing them in the Anaheim area.
Pods are 7-1/2" long and 2" wide on productive 30” plants with good foliage cover for the fruit. TMV resistant. Capsicum annuum (80 days)
Heat Level: Mild Scoville 500 -1000
~ Packet contains 30 seeds.
In early spring, start seeds indoors 8 weeks prior to warm nightly temperatures. Place the seeds in sterile media and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, bright light, and keep moist at all times. Seeds will germinate in 7 - 21 days. Transplant seedlings into pots and grow until there are 6 true leaves on the plant. Plant them directly into rich soil, 30” apart or into large 5-gallon containers. Harvest chiles when they are green. If left on the plant a couple more weeks, the chiles will turn red at full maturity.
All of our seeds are GMO-free.
