New Mexico Big Jim peppers can grow up to a foot long and have thick walls with a mild flavor. Most of the peppers grow to be about seven to nine inches long. The plant produces high yields of bright green peppers that are popular for roasting and are frequently called the "green chile." The New Mexico Big Jim pepper is related to the other Hatch chile pepper varieties, but the Big Jim is the largest of the group. 

The peppers will eventually ripen to red, but many people choose to enjoy New Mexico peppers when they are still green. The green New Mexico Big Jim peppers have less heat and are more flavorful and the mature red peppers are hotter and slightly sweeter. While it’s big in size, the New Mexico Big Jim pepper isn’t big on heat as it averages about 2,500 to 3,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU), which is similar to a mild Jalapeno pepper.

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

    I received my plant in July and it's already produced a bunch of peppers. I will definitely buy more plants next year. This is fun!

    Healthy plants

    I bought two plants and both arrived in good condition. I wasn't sure how well they would survive the cross country journey but they were packaged very well.
