Hatch Red X Hot - Ms. Junie - Authentic red chile flavor with a lot of hot heat! This chile is grown in the Hatch Valley of southwest New Mexico and surprises everyone with its great flavor and heat. This Hatch Red Ms. Junie variety is perfect for roasting, making red chile sauce or grinding into pungent red chile powder from its dried pods.

Chiles are 9" long on productive 36” plants. A very heavy yielding chile pepper. It turns quickly from green to red. Fresh red chile is perishable and difficult to find in grocery stores. Grow your own and pick it at peak maturity. 

Capsicum annuum (85 days) Heirloom - Open Pollinated

Heat Level: X Hot  Scoville 9000 - 10,000

~ Packet contains 1 oz seeds. (approx 3,500)  (Germ. 82% 7/2023)

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, 36” apart. Harvest chiles when they are turn red at full maturity.

*Technically, to call any of these chiles "Hatch Chiles," they must be grown in the Hatch region of New Mexico. But we still think they taste great when grown all over the world, plus fresh homegrown chile is always extra-delicious and it's often hard to get New Mexican chile around the world! So this is way you can grow a little bit of New Mexico in your garden, no matter where you live.
