NuMex Heritage Big Jim
New! Big Jim Heritage - We are excited to be the only source to offer the NEW Heritage Big Jim seed. We have just aquired this much sought after reselected 'breeder's seed' for the NuMex Heritage Big Jim of 2016. The plants were grown under covers to prevent cross pollination and to provide the purest of seed. Breeder's seed is usually only used to propagate crops for bulk seed sales, but we are offering it to you, the home grower. New Big Jim Heritage is an improved version of the original NuMex Big Jim variety with a consistent hot heat level, and pods that yield 10% more and have 5 times more flavor compounds. The Big Jim has always been the most famous New Mexico green chile. Don't miss out! Capsicum annuum (75 days)
Heat Level: Medium Scoville 2000 - 4000
~ 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 - 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.
