NuMex Heritage 6-4 - 1 lb. - An improved New Mexico green chile with mild heat and great flavor. The original New Mexico 6-4 seed from a 1957 seed bank was used to reselect this variety with all the best attributes. The result has more flavor with higher yields and more uniform heat. All of the improved New Mexico green chile cultivars from New Mexico State University carry the 'NuMex' name.

Chiles have thick flesh and grow 6" long on productive 30‚ÄĚ plants. Capsicum annuum (70 days)

Heat Level: Mild  Scoville 1000 

~ Packet contains 1 lb seeds.  (Germ. 93% 7/2023)

In early spring, start seeds indoors 8¬†weeks prior to warm nightly temperatures. Place the seeds in sterile media and cover 1/4‚ÄĚ deep. Provide 85¬įF 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‚ÄĚ 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.
