At New Mexico Catalog, we specialize in "heirloom" or "heritage" chile varieties which offer flavor that is superior to others available today. Our NuMex Heritage 6-4 and NuMex Heritage Big Jim have five to six times the flavor characteristics of their counterparts. NuMex describes chile varieties which were developed by New Mexico State University. Varieties labeled NuMex are considered "heirloom" and have five to six times more flavor than standard varieties.
The best, most flavorful green chile is grown in southern New Mexico, which includes the Mesilla Valley and Hatch (hence the name "Hatch Chile").
Our farm in the Mesilla Valley has just the right combination of altitude, soil and a long, hot growing season. Our chile is grown from certifed seed which guarantees consistent flavor and heat level in each batch.
For nearly 30 years, we have been shipping green chile and consistently giving our repeat customers a reason to buy from us again and again.
We only harvest best chile of each crop and personally inspect each pepper before it is shipped or roasted.
For roasting, we only select the straightest peppers which ensure even roasting and even peeling.
