Hatch Red Hot - Sandia Hot Chile Seeds
This Hatch Red Hot is ideal for making red chile powder because of its thin walled skin. Peppers reach full size when they are green in color and when left on the plant they will mature to red. The thin skin of this variety makes it better for dehydration than the NuMex Sandia Select which has thicker flesh. The 6”-9” pods have a spicy chile flavor and matures early and produce well in high temperatures. The thin walls allow it to dry quickly after harvest for making red chile powder. Plants grow 30-36” tall.
