Hatch Green X-Hot Lumbre - 1/2 oz. Seeds - BULK
This is one of our hottest green chiles and when it hits your tongue, pain signals rush to your brain. Then your brain releases endorphins that cause a mild euphoria, so you feel better and want more green chile! The molecule responsible for making the hot burning sensation is capsaicin and each new bite stimulates the brain to send out more endorphins to soothe the pain. Pods are small at 5” long and are screaming hot. Plants grow to 30“ tall. A good addition to any garden. Grown near Hatch, NM and sold as Lumbre X-Hot. Capsicum annuum (85 days) Heirloom - Open-Pollinated
Heat Level: X Hot Scoville: 10,000

~ Packet contains 1/2 oz. 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.
