Chimayo Chillies

by Mark Rowland



Mild chillies with an good flavour. Plants start cropping when fairly small, but continue growing to make a medium sized bush by the end of the season. The dark mahogany red colour of the dried fruits make this variety very popular for ristras.

Chimayo crops very early and ripe chillies can be harvested well before any other variety.
