We have a fun fact that you can tell your friends and family about this pepper. When you see or hear the word NuMex, this means most pepper varieties with this word have been created or improved by New Mexico State University! This is a pepper variety named by Mr. Joe E. Parker who was a graduate of New Mexico State University.

The 2 ft. tall compact pepper plants are early producers with heavy, consistent yields that’ll grow 6-8" long (and could be longer than your hand). These peppers are smooth, shiny, and shaped like a pendant, tapering off to a point, and will ripen from green to red like other NuMex varieties.

With meaty and thick flesh, medium heat level, and rich, full flavor, we just want to cook this pepper in everything! The NuMex Joe E. Parker Pepper (what a tongue twister) is a mild Southwestern-style traditional Anaheim chile pepper that is great to use for stuffing, roasting, grilling, or processing!

Our mission is to introduce you to a diverse array of pepper varieties, setting the stage for an exciting and rewarding gardening experience. Let's dive into the essentials together.

  • 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.
