Seeking new, improved, delicious peppers? Don’t forget to check out the Numex 6-4 pepper! Like most pepper varieties that bear the NuMex name, the NuMex Heritage 6-4 was improved by the New Mexico State University which has a long history of chile pepper improvement since 1888. The original NuMex 6-4 pepper is from a 1957 seed bank that was re-selected to be improved.

The NuMex 6-4 pepper plant will grow up to 3 ft. and have 10% better yields than previous productions. These 6” Anaheim-type pepper pods will have thicker flesh and smooth skin, making them a great variety to dry.

This pepper is super delicious to try on many dishes, as it has 5 times more flavor and more uniform heat! These will taste sweet once you take a bite out of them. Try using these peppers the next time you make homemade salsa, or add it to fresh or cooked foods to give it a nice mild spice!

I like your seeds, a bit more pricey than some other seed company’s but also more reliable. You folks also tend to have to varieties that I’m looking for. I do have to get some exotic varieties from special growers. You guys are my #1 go to Pepper seed vender for sure!

Numex 6-4 and Feher Ozon poor germination

I started my 11 Numex 6-4 and 12 Feher Ozon seeds at the same time using the same seed starting mix as I did with multiple other pepper varieties from other vendors this year. Out of 11 Numex 6-4 seeds 2 germinated. Out of 12 Feher Ozon seeds 3 germinated. All other seeds of varying peppers (jalapenos, poblanos, pimento, bell, pepperoncini, Tabasco, red ghost, habanero) germinated at a 100% rate.

This is my first order through Pepper Joe's and I honestly am very disappointed.
