Originally released in 1956, Sandia chile peppers are grown throughout New Mexico, particularly around the Mesilla Valley and Hatch. The Sandia Select variety was developed at New Mexico State University after green chile growers asked NMSU's breeding program for an improved variety that had thicker walls. The peppers start out green and mature to red, and they're smaller than the traditional Hatch pepper. Growers in the southwest region typically allow the peppers to ripen to red before they are harvested as the pods are processed and used in red chile powder and in chile flakes. The Sandia Select pepper is mild as it averages about 9,500 Scoville Heat Units.

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

    As a home gardener with limited space, the Joe Parker Hatch Pepper plants have been a fantastic addition to my garden. They don't take up much room but still produce a significant number of peppers.

    What I love about Sandia chiles is their versatility. From mild to hot, these plants allow me to tailor the heat level in my dishes. Perfect for salsas, roasting, or just adding a kick to my favorite recipes. A must-have for any kitchen garden.
