Anaheim is the granddaddy of all the current New Mexico green chile pod types! It 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. The name 'Anaheim' derives from Emilio Ortega, a farmer who brought the seeds from New Mexico to the Anaheim, California.

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, and 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.

Check out the very similar Anaheim Sonora pepper. It is larger and meatier than Anaheim. Also tobacco mosaic virus resistant. 


All of our seeds are GMO-free.

Happy to buy seeds

Kind of dumb to review seeds that haven’t been planted and grown yet.

Your history of "Anaheim" chiles is WRONG.

Dr. Garcia never moved to california ! Seeds of New Mexico chiles were taken to CA in the early 1900s and as they grew near Anaheim, THOSE chiles are called anaheims. Read some history and update your page !!!

Delicious and productive plants

I grew these Anaheim chile seeds from you last year, they were great - most all the seeds germinated so I had to thin them (a hard task to swallow!) I managed to save some of the extras to put in their own pots to share with my community garden members. All the plants grew quickly and produced a ton of pods - which we roasted and ate as fast as we could grow them. I'll plant more this season and will make room for more plants so that we can have a bigger harvest and ideally freeze some for the winter months! Thanks for the great seeds.

Green Chile Seeds at Last!

After living and working in New Mexico many years, graduate school took me back to the Midwest...where green chile was virtually unknown! So each year I flew back to my favorite state. In the Fall, I brought back as many fresh green chilies as would fit in my golf bag. In the Spring, I hand-carried an entire flat of green chile seedings through the Albuquerque airport and onto the plane. This year, a dear friend sent me a package Anaheim chile seeds from a company I never knew existed: Sandia Seed Company! So I ordered even more seeds, planted them this Spring and my garden exploded with Anaheim chilies! The pods were long, fleshy, fat and mild--- perfect to roast and share with my family. I had so many chile pods that I began introducing them to neighbors and friends, teaching them to roast and use chilies to make rellenos, salsa, enchiladas and add them to dozens of dishes. My huge pepper plants continued producing buckets...yes, BUCKETS of chilies for weeks into late fall. Best of all, I've enjoyed my favorite green chile all summer & fall, knowing my freezer is nearly full of roasted chilies waiting to enhance so many meals until next year's harvest.
