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:

    Quality seeds

    As a home gardener with a passion for peppers, I couldn’t be happier with the Hatch pepper seeds. They sprouted quickly and have grown into robust plants that are now loaded with peppers. The flavor is outstanding, perfect for roasting, grilling, or adding to salsas. The seeds were easy to start, even indoors, and the plants transitioned well when moved outside. These are a must-have for anyone looking to grow their own Hatch peppers.

    Posted by Ruben Uribe on Sep 20th 2023

    The seeds produced peppers that are huge. definitely bigger than most other varieties i've grown. I would highly recommend and iwll be buying more for next season. I'll probably buy some plants too because my uncle did and he said the plants from these guys were amazing.
