It's back! Española Improved NuMex - This chile makes excellent red chile powder with medium heat. It is a fast-growing and early maturing chile adapted to northern New Mexico's high altitude and cool seasons. In 1984 Española Improved was developed at NMSU by Drs. Matta and Nakayama. It is a cross between Sandia and the northern New Mexico landrace chile Española, making it ideal for high altitude and cool seasons. This chile makes excellent deep-flavored red chile powder.

Chiles are 7" long with smooth thin-walled skin and grows on productive 30” plants. Ideal for short growing seasons. Capsicum annuum (75 days) Open-pollinated

Heat Level: Medium  Scoville 2000 - 4000

~ Packet contains 10 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.
