Campo Dorado

  • TS335
  • Capsicum annuum. This new chile variety comes from the Crazy Chile Farm, an NS/S partner farmer and a hunger-fighting project of the Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration in Mesa, AZ.  The Crazy Chile Farm started in 2015 by growing Chimayo chile, from the farming town in northern New Mexico famous for its local chile. After several years of seed saving and growing in climate, soils and elevation extremely different from Chimayo, it became clear that the chiles had transformed into a new variety with a sweeter flavor and more orangey color.  The Chile Farmers named it Campo Dorado for the Goldfield Mountains near the farm.  In their location Campo Dorado produces late spring through fall, though the fruits are much smaller in the extreme heat of summer.  Not from our seed bank collection, but your purchase supports our conservation mission.

    • Origin: low desert at about 1600' elevation
    • Mild to medium heat with a sweet flavor.
    • 1-5" long.
    • Approx. 0.3g/25 seeds per packet.
    • Limit 3 packets.
  • $3.95

Miniature peppers

I’m growing these campo dorado plants in 15 gallon containers west Texas, elevation2900’.It’s hot and dry here. I had them in full sun and they stayed very small. I moved them to a mostly shady area and they grew a little bigger, but the mature, red peppers are about 1”. I had better luck with Chimayo pepoers. I’ll try them again in the cooler fall months and hope it makes a difference. Mine do not look like the picture with the big chiles
