Chimayo New Mexico Landrace Heirloom Chile Pepper Premium Seed Packet
Each year we grow a giant garden of our favorite vegetables. Most of our favorite vegetables are old time varieties that people currently call "Heirloom". It is with great pleasure that we offer up our favorites for you.
The Chimayo pepper is a New Mexico chile pepper landrace of the species Capsicum annuum. It is named after the town of Chimay, New Mexico, where roughly 200 hectares (500 acres) of Chimay peppers are harvested annually. It is considered one of the two best chiles in the state, the others being those grown in Hatch. The pepper is so prized that powdered Chimay pepper can cost as much as 45 per pound. Chimay chiles have a complex flavor described as sweet and smoky, and are extremely popular in New Mexican cuisine for making posole and carne adovada.
