Pepper - Chimayo (Certified Organic)
3.25 6.5 $3.25 - $6.50
Capsicum annuum. This famous heirloom pepper is a joy to grow! Great yields on self-supporting plants grown outdoors in our cool maritime climate! Loaded plants are super easy to harvest as the peppers snap right off the stalk. Chimayo is a hill town in New Mexico, at 6,000 feet in elevation, and this variety has been revived as an important part of the cultural history there. Similar in heat to a moderate jalapeño, with scoville units at 4,000-6,000. Chimayo has a smoky, earthy flavor, and is typically used as a roasting pepper, made into chili powder or flakes, or dried in ristras.
