Big Jim Legacy is an all-around winner when it comes to green chile. It has incredible New Mexican chile flavor, thick flesh, and mild to medium heat. A favorite for chile rellenos.
Great flavor and thick meat on these beautiful 8-10“ pods. Produces an abundant crop on 30” tall plants. When full size and green in color, this New Mexico chile is perfect for big stuffed rellenos. It has incredible flavor and smells so good when it is being roasted. The pods peel easily and have thick flesh with the perfect amount of heat and flavor. These green chiles have large harvests. We usually like to pinch off the first couple of blooms on seedlings to encourage more blooms and chiles later. The dry red Legacy Big Jim chile can be used to make delicious red enchilada sauce. Capsicum annuum (78 days)
Heat Level: Mild to Medium Scoville 2,000 - 4,000
