Chimayo

An American heirloom originating in the mountains north of Santa Fe, this New Mexico variety produces 3-4" elongated pods with medium thin flesh and mild heat. The earliest hot green roasting chile, also ripens to a deep red on very short, sprawling plants.  Dried powder is prized by cooks for its depth of flavor. Every pod should ripen.
