NuMex Chili Peppers were developed by the Chili Pepper Institute at NMSU. Like most NuMex varieties, they are bred to create pepper plants that are easier to maintain and perform well in most gardens.

These chili peppers are pendant-shaped that almost look identical to Christmas lights. The pods will grow to be 2" long and point upward on the plant, with medium-thick walls and smooth, glossy skin. You'll see these peppers change colors from green to reddish brown when they reach maturity (we recommend harvesting at the mature color to really get the best flavor possible).

The NuMex Chili Peppers are incredibly versatile to use in the kitchen, as well! With mild heat and incredibly sweet and spicy flavor, these peppers work great used in fresh foods or dried into chili powder! They are great for roasting and grilling, or if you're really hungry, pop some into your mouth for a quick snack with mild heat! Add this flavorful NuMux pepper to your growing list

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
