EXCLUSIVE

Our mixed packet offers a trio of the best chile flavors with three different heat levels. You’ll have dark green, heart-shaped Ancho ‘San Luis’ with a mild aromatic flavor perfect for chile rellenos; shiny, thick-fleshed ‘Joe Parker,’ an authentic Santa Fe style medium-heat chile wonderful to grill; and spicy Jalapeño ‘Sierra Fuego’ whose hot pungency is just right in salsas, bean dishes and ‘chile poppers.’


Seeds are color-coded with food grade stain to distinguish varieties.

Red seed = Jalapeño ‘Sierra Fuego’ F1
Green seed = New Mex ‘Joe Parker’
Undyed seed = Ancho ‘San Luis’

Seed Count: 40-45 / Weight: 0.35 gms

STARTING SEEDLINGS

In early spring, start seeds indoors about 2 months before night temps are reliably in the 50-55°F (10-13°C) range. Sow seeds 1/4 inch deep and 1 inch apart in seed starting mix. Keep moist but not soggy and very warm, 80-85°F (27-29°C). Provide a strong light source until ready to plant outside. When seedlings are 2 inches tall, transplant into individual pots. Maintain at 70-75°F (21- 24°C). Feed with half-strength fertilizer every 2 weeks until weather is warm enough to gradually acclimate seedlings to outdoor conditions. Transplant 2 - 2 1/2 feet apart into rich soil in full sun.

 

GROWING NOTES

Don’t transplant chiles outdoors until night temperatures stay securely above 55° (13°C) Prepare soil well with aged manure or compost. Plant only robust seedlings with well developed roots and mulch well to maintain even soil moisture. Stake or cage chile plants to support their heavy fruit sets. Keep weeded, watered and feed monthly throughout the growing season.

 

HARVEST AND USE

Harvest when chiles have a high gloss by cutting, not pulling, them from the plant. Color develops as chiles mature; pick green or allow to color up. Use mild Anchos, medium New Mex, and hot Jalapeños to suit your taste in all kinds of delicious salsas, fajitas, chile rellenos, rich sauces, rubs, soups or stews. Use fresh, or roast and remove skins. Freeze roasted chilies for future use.
