Like most NuMex varieties, this pepper was produced from the original heirloom Sandia Hot using natural plant selection techniques by New Mexico State University. The NuMex Sandia Pepper, developed in 1956, is a gorgeous mild variety that is made easy to grow and useful in the kitchen.

The small pepper plants can grow anywhere from 2-3 ft. tall and produce long, pendant-shaped pods. Some of these peppers - which can grow up to 9" long - are curved, with smooth, shiny skin. NuMex Sandia peppers will ripen from green to red, with heat that may intensify as they mature.

These peppers have the great flavor of an Anaheim pepper: a mild, fruity sweetness, and is an eatable flavor that can be counted on for versatility in the kitchen! It’s also hotter than the original Sandia Hot, but we’re not complaining…

Pepper seeds are difficult to germinate compared to very many other seeds and take a long time to do so. I was disappointed in the number of seeds shipped. Factoring in the cost, it will be some of the most expensive plants of my life even if 3/4 result in a plant to transfer. I wont purchase from you again. Goodbye

Excellent Service

I ordered a number of rare pepper seeds, both Baccatum and Annuum types that are difficult to find at other seed companies. My order arrived quickly and in good condition. Spring will tell if the seeds are correct, but I expect they will be fine. Happy Customer.
