Considered by many in New Mexico and the Southwest US as the finest chili rellano variety available and long a staple for commercial production. 6" long pods are 1 1/2" in diameter with thick walls and a terrific balance of medium heat and good flavor. Selected from native New Mexico Chilies in the late 1940's and standardized by the 1950's as a premium chili variety for the region. Ripens green to red. Untreated seed.
