Chimayo Chile Seeds
Chimayo - An heirloom chile grown for generations in the Chimayo Valley of northern New Mexico. This native strain has fantastic red chile flavor. At first it tastes sweet and then medium hot. Its great flavor is the result of hand selection over hundreds of years. The Chimayo red chile sauce is easy to make and delicious on enchiladas and burritos.
Allow the chiles to remain on the plant and mature until almost completely red. The thin skinned pods are 6" -7" long and after harvesting will dry quickly in the sun. Capsicum annuum (75 days) Heirloom - Open-pollinated - Non-GMO
Heat Level: Medium Scoville 4,000 - 5,000
~ 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.
This is the perfect chile pepper with heat, but pleasant heat, not set you on fire heat! Perfect to eat fresh or dry. Pretty, prolific, and perfect!
The Chiymayo pepper might be the second best pepper in New Mexico, however it is more versatile when dried. It makes a fantastic red enchilada sauce. Add it to your tacos and red chili. You can't go wrong when you grow this remarkable pepper. I've been growing this for over 7 years now.
I'm excited to try these for chile once they dry! These are bigger and less smooth than the Chimayo I've been growing for the last few years, also a bit less hardy. I'm interested to see how the flavor compares! I've always loved my Sandia chile!
I have been growing Chimayo chilies for the past 3 years. I was turned on to this variety from a work friend after she had been in Chimayo NM on a vacation. I have been growing Chilies for the last 20 years and I am an accomplished cook. This is perhaps the best Chile I have ever tasted. Friends and family love it. Five Stars.....
This summer my Chimayo plants did very well. They were the first to produce fruit and ripened early. They have great rich flavor and will be a main component of my hot sauce this year. I will be increasing the number I plant next year.
