Rattlesnake green chile is the new and very spicy variety joining the Hatch Green Chile compadres this growing season. The Rattlesnake chile was developed to be very hot and very delicious. Pods can be 4" - 8" long with thick flesh and plants grow to 30" tall. If Hatch Green Lumbre X-Hot is not hot enough for you, then try this perfect pepper. Its Scoville is reported to reach up to 18,000 SHU, but more often it is much lower near the 10,000 SHU rating. The Hatch Green Rattlesnake has a more flavorful heat that is more appetizing and similar to the Hatch Green X-Hot Barker's Hot flavor. Easy to grow. Grown near Hatch, NM and sold as Rattlesnake X-Hot  Capsicum annuum (80 days) Heirloom - Open-Pollinated

Heat Level: X Hot  Scoville: 10,000 - 18,000

~ 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 - 14 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.

*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.

Perfect in WV

This is the 3rd year for growing chile seeds in West Virginia and the only plant I can find that keeps its heat, is the Rattlesnake. I have tried the medium and it is mild and the hot is medium here in the WV soil. Being born and raised in NM, I can't live without my chile! Only thing I can not grow here is the red chile. For some reason, it will not turn red here. I'm going to try to get the seeds started extra early this year and see if that makes a difference.

Excellent crop

This is the 3rd year we have ordered seeds from Sandia Seed Co and grown this variety of green chile. Other years we also grew different varieties of green chile but this year we decided to just concentrate on the Rattlesnake. All the seeds I sowed germinated and we had over 100 seedlings.
The plants do very well after transplanting, the pods are larger, straighter and meatier. The heat is perfect for us although a little too hot for others.
Several pods per plant and we were able to harvest until the first freeze. Highly recommended for fellow chile-heads!

B Co Garden away from home!

A really nice new addition to the garden this year. I let all of them get red and made an incredible red Chile powder. My friends and family have asked that I share every year now!
