Like most NuMex varieties, this pepper was produced from the original heirloom Sandia Hot using natural plant selection techniques by New Mexico State University. Developed in 1956, the NuMex Sandia has the great flavor of an Anaheim pepper where it has 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…
These peppers will ripen from green to red with heat that may intensify and are curved pods that grow anywhere from 5” to 9”.
