We will get the Hatch Red Chile Pods around the middle of November
Signed in as:
We have been selling Hatch chile since the early 70's. It started with bringing chile for family and friends. And it has grown into bringing truck loads of chile for all our friends.
We always start taking orders for the Fresh or Roasted Green Chile on July 15th. The website goes live at 12:05 AM, for the Green Chile. There will only be 3 loads this year, order early, the chile will sell out fast. When you order, you pick the type of chile (Mild, Medium, Hot, Xhot, and XXhot) you want, you pick either Fresh or Roasted Chile. You will choose a pickup date and pickup time hour, when you order. We schedule your time and email you, your exact pickup time.
When you arrive you get checked in, We do not roast your chile till you are checked In.
Once you roast a sack of chile, you are on a clock to get it either eaten or put in a freezer.
Our family has land in Hatch, some of the chile comes from our land. You can not grow chile in the same place year after year, chile is hard on the soil, You grow chile one year, then cotton the second year, then alfalfa the third year, then the 4th year you can grow chile again. That is how the cycle works.
The chile comes in around the middle of August, this all depends on the weather in the Hatch Valley of New Mexico.
We do not ship the Sun Dried Red Chile (pods and powder) during Green Chile season.
