    The harvest in NM is over for green chile, but mine is just starting to pop. I only have about 22 plants, but they look like they'll produce me a few pods. I have (8) NM Big Jim, (8) NM Sandia, (4) NM Espanola, and (2) hybrid called Lumbre. Notice the huge leaves on the Lumbre.
    Thanks for spending the time to view the future enjoyment of my taste buds.
  2. Looking good chiles is my next adventure

    I'm impressed.

    I guess they are done here, I don't see the roasters anymore.

    I would guess the best chile would be the one you like best. At the end of August here in New Mexico you can get roasted green chile in 4 different types, mild, medium, hot, and extra hot. Each is a different chile. So it boils down to which you like best. I always buy hot, and a little extra hot for a little kick.[​IMG]

    I was like "WHAT THE HELL???!!"[​IMG]... then I looked at the post date!
    Me and Bassman haven't see a green sprig in months. Thought the cabin fever just set in!

    Regarding types of peppers, I like Anaheim peppers - have grown them for years with good results and I guess I just like them. Last year I planted som Pablano's and aside from being a bit more difficult to peel once roasted, they have a really robust flavor that I'm really beginning to like.

    Regarding hot - I always buy "hot" pepper plants. Some end up being mild, some are damn hot! May be the farmer....

    I have found that if you want hot peppers, let the plant dry out and harvest just before you HAVE to water them..... like almost wilting. If you want them milder, harvest the day after a good watering.

    Ohh hey Rich... you may get a kick out of my tat... [​IMG]

    You are correct about the peppers. They will be hotter if you stress them by holding back on the water. BTW, I like the tat. It's all good my friend.
  15. I miss getting fresh roasted peppers in the southwest.
