Our Heritage is the ultimate Big Jim Chile, with more flavor and consistency than other varieties of Big Jim. Has incredible chile flavor which gives salsas and sauces the flavor without too much heat. Superior medium-hot flavor with a thick flesh, big pods and beautiful straight chiles. They make a great stuffed relleno and are a choice you are sure to love on steaks and hamburgers. Our best variety for roasting. For those who think that mild is wimpy and extra hot is insane. We are one of the lucky few who are producing this authentic chile and you are one of the lucky few to experience the flavor. Our Heirloom Heritage variety of Nu Mex Big Jim may just become your most favorite chile from New Mexico. This heritage green chile has been "rehabilitated" to the original variety which was introduced in 1975 by New Mexico State University, the home of the New Mexico Chile Pepper. Grown in the Mesilla Valley of Southern New Mexico from certified seed and available in 2 lb., 5 lb., 10 lb. or 20 lb. quantities. Shipped roasted, vacuum packed and frozen in 1 lb. or 2.5 lb. packages (except for 2 lb. orders). Pre-order and save 20%. Shipping in August.
