This new Sandia variety has superior flavor, uniform high heat level, better plant and pod uniformity, higher yield and a thick fruit wall. This fantastic New Mexico green chile was developed from the original heirloom Sandia Hot using natural plant selection techniques. However this NuMex Sandia Select comes with a little more heat than the original, and that's the way we like it. The dark green pods are 8" long and grow on productive 35” tall plants.
This large thick fleshed green chile is hot and has great flavor. Its thick walls make it great for chopped green chile to use on cheeseburgers, eggs, potatoes and almost everything you eat! Or keep the pods in one piece and stuff and fry for spicy chile rellenos. It's easy, just roast, peel, stuff with cheese or a meat mixture, batter and deep fry. As always all our seeds are Non-GMO.
