About This Variety

Capsicum annum
Seeds Per Packet: 30
Price Per Packet: $4.00
Days To Maturity: 90 days

I acquired this variety from a native of Jemez Pueblo, New Mexico, while visiting my brother in-law. I was fixated on finding pepper seeds on our trip and serendipitously met this man working at the welcome center/pueblo museum in Jemez on our way to hot springs in the mountains. He pulled a handful of peppers off of a ristra in the museum, telling me his family had grown them the previous year. Plant produces good yields of 3-inch long hot peppers. Peppers turn from green to red when mature.
