Like most NuMex varieties, this pepper was produced from the original heirloom Sandia Hot using 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…

Amazing germination rate for this lot!

Of the eight initial seeds I started, all eight germinated (I only needed six plants). They are growing quickly and all six of the plants that I have potted are very strong.
