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 has 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 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! The pepper plants are early producers with heavy, consistent yields that’ll grow 6-8 inches long (and could be longer than your hand). With meaty and thick flesh, medium heat level, and rich, full flavor, we just want to cook this pepper in everything! The peppers will ripen from green to red like other NuMex varieties.
