At this ritzy ass grocery store in town they have a "Hatch Chile Festival" every year where they bring in this big metal drum thing that rotates over a fire for roasting peppers. I have a bunch of roasted peppers in my freezer :)

I love Hatch peppers, they have a real good flavor.

Sobriety certainly is good, i try to save it for special occasions though.

Well not really:)

"There is no such thing as a Hatch chile, despite all the hype about them. It is not a chile variety, as many people think. Yes, there are chiles grown in Hatch, usually the varieties 'Barker' and 'NuMex 6-4'. These grown-in-Hatch varieties are no better than those grown in the Mesilla Valley or in Deming. There are simply not enough chiles grown in Hatch to supply all of the sellers claiming to provide "Hatch chile." A few years ago at the New Mexico Chile Conference, I spoke to two women who have a chile farm in eastern Arizona who confessed to me that they shipped their chiles to Hatch, where roadside vendors labeled them "Hatch chiles." So, how did this mythology come about? Well, first, there is a Hatch brand of canned chiles, packed by Border Foods in Deming. This brand has been on the market for years, but probably most of these chiles are grown in Mexico, not Hatch. Then there is what Jimmy Buffet calls the "coconut telegraph," but here it's the Capsicum Telegraph--namely word of mouth and rumor from consumers who mistakenly spread the hype. Sorry to burst everyone's Hatch bubble, but I always tell it like it is."

your telling me about New Mexico Chile?
I live hear mate...thats exactly what Hatch Chile is...
Long Green Chile of many different varities grown in Hatch New Mexico...if it aint grown in Hatch New Mexico then it aint Hatch Chile...
and yes Luna County New Mexico does produce alot of Green Chile
and fyi I help build Border Foods some 20 years ago,so if your gonna tell it like it is then tell it right.
Mexico does not grow hardly any Long Green Chile...
they do however grow tons of Jalapenos...
and Border Foods runs many Labels all from the Same chile crop.

The quality has dropped several years now since the big Rio Grande Flooded the whole town of Hatch...changeing the ph of the soil,so now it is very difficult to get Hot peppers from Hatch...this will improve in a few more years of growing .
Luna County produces a better quality at this time.

For those of you who are new here, Potowie is a wealth of information, and usually does not say something unless he is intimately knowledgeable about it.

Have a little respect please.

I love Hatch peppers, they have a real good flavor.


I just rub them down with some EVOO,grill them or put them under the broiler untill blistered,toss them into a plastic bag for 10 min. or so then peel them.They are then good to go for the freezer or stuffing.The grill seems to be abuse of the hood...

I love hatch salsa, red, and green!


The display was kind of weak,the nice lady brought out the case of them for me and I snagged a couple of red ones.Maybe some seed are viable.I used to grow them nicely in my Virginia days,but they are tough here in my heat.Pretty much a spring or fall crop but gotta have some cooprative weather also.

Any idea what type of hatch chiles they're selling?


They are New Mex.Most of them long and kinda flat,but a few blockey and triangular(best for Rellanos)I recall both being on the same plant previously.These were very thick skinned after roasting.

saving any seeds ?


see previous response...ask and ye shall receive...

Back around the new millinium, I was visiting some of my redneck kin folks in Jacksonville,TX.
we decided to go find some green chile so we could show them how it was used.
well let me tell you they wanted 4.99 a lb at the local grocery and I about lost it.
then I had that little bulb in my head go off.
ding! :idea:
next season myself and a couple friends bought a semi load of fresh NM Big Jim ,picked it then shipped it to Tx and made a terrible Nice profit...we paid 15 cents a lb and sold it for 3,99 a lb and still beat the local market price by a dollar...
total weight was just at 40,000 lbs...
we then went to the tomato growers local and refilled the semi with east texas tomatos and brought that back to El Paso
Double Ding! :idea::idea:
it was a real good year for agriculture and I didnt even have to grow it...

Nice haul with no deadhead. :)

And just how long did it take you and a couple of friends to pick 40,000 pounds of peppers?

The same pepper haul to Texas doesn't work today?

The same pepper haul to Texas doesn't work today?

we hired a crew of pickers to pick the chile,
2 1/2 days to pick and load the truck.
we hired a truck and driver to deliver it. that took about 16 hours for the delivery and offload at the ware house cooler.
payable on delivery .
Yes someone still does it every season, but not us.
my contact in tx passed away .

something like this requires detailed planning to such a level that the load must be sold before it ever leaves the field,
other wise you'd be setting there with a load that can't be sold.
the tomato load was less profitable,but we figured it would pay for the return trip.
all total we 3 made 1.00 a lb ea.
and expenses made .99 a lb.{pickers/truck,driver,hotel}
we left on a sunday and returned the following sunday.

today it is much more expensive due to fuel/insurance costs.
and mandatory down time for truckers.
