The Lumbre pepper is the ideal pepper for those who enjoy the exceptional flavor and versatility of the original Hatch pepper, but want more heat. A spicy variant of the world famous Hatch (New Mexico) Green Chile pepper, the Lumbre pepper was developed in New Mexico and averages close to 10,000 Scoville Heat Units, about twice as hot as the traditional Hatch pepper. Lumbre peppers are smaller than other New Mexico peppers as they typically range in size from 5 to 7 inches. The thick walled peppers mature from green to red, and can be used green or red, but their heat level is spicier when they’re red. Lumbre peppers are about as spicy as Serranos and Jalapenos.

We specialize in providing plants for the five main Hatch chile varieties:

    Very pleased

    I’ve been growing peppers for years, and the Lumbre is by far one of the best varieties I’ve encountered. The flavor is outstanding, with just the right amount of heat, and the plants produce an impressive number of peppers. They’re also very resilient, with great disease resistance. Whether you’re a seasoned gardener or a beginner, these plants are a must-have!

    As a New Mexico native, I can vouch for the authenticity of these Hatch plants. The peppers bring back memories of home. The aroma, the heat – it's the real deal. So happy to have a piece of the Southwest in my backyard!
