NuMex Heritage 6-4 Anaheim
Capsicum annuum. One of the chile varieties that produce the famous Hatch chiles in Hatch, NM, this variety is the result of many years of chile breeding at New Mexico State University at Las Cruces. This process was started by Dr. Fabian Garcia in the 1880's, crossing New Mexican "native" chiles with the goal of developing chiles that were larger, smoother, fleshier, more tapering and included a shoulder-less pod for canning purposes. This chile has a high yield, dependable heat, ease of de-stemming and, especially, that traditional New Mexican chile taste.
