X-Hot Fresh Hatch Green Chile - (Lumbre)

I understand that pre-orders for fresh chile will not begin shipping till July or August.

Our hottest variety, Lumbre, is relatively new to the world of New Mexican chile. It is much hotter than our regular Hot (Sandia) but still has killer flavor. Lumbre is a true scorcher with each pod coming out blistering hot and is the smallest variety we've ever grown. It's pods are shorter and narrower than our other varieties but still have enough meat for roasting. Lumbre was developed by Jimmy Lytle, son of Big Jim Lytle for whom the world-famous Big Jim variety is named.

While Lumbre is a super-hot, it still has a wonderful New Mexican chile flavor and goes great in enchilada sauces. You don't need to use much lumbre to spice up your favorite dish either! Lumbre sets smaller pods ranging from 3-5 inches so don’t expect to be making too many rellenos out of it. As a chopped chile, it packs such a big punch you can make a pot of enchilada sauce from our Mild and sprinkle in a little lumbre if you want to turn that mild into Hot. If you’re a true chile-head, Lumbre is ideal for salsa because of it’s intense flavorful and extreme heat.

These chile are hot and they have a great flavor, we will definitely be ordering again. We ordered 50 pounds of fresh chilies and roasted them ourselves. The chile came in quickly and they were so fresh. If you like Hot the Lumber is the way to go!!!

Ordered once and received the wrong product. I contacted HCS and explained the situation to them . They promptly replaced my order at no charge. I have been buying from HCS for about 4 - 5 Years, and the quality is always supreme. My Lumber is the best.


The chile arrived fresh! Roasted them on the grill to add a smokey flavor.

Surprisingly large and meaty for a really hot Hatch Chile--arrived in great shape to me in Virginia and roasted beautifully!

Best tasting chile!!!


These are very hot! We only need one or two of them to spice up a dish. I wear gloves when peeling them. They are smaller peppers. They arrived in great condition. Thank you!

I ordered fresh green and frozen green. The fresh is is far better. I did have to freeze what I didn't use and I hope it doesn't loose much flavor. I'm very happy with the fresh. It smells great and taste fantastic. I received it on a Wednesday but couldn't roast until Saturday. By then a small number had already turned 50% or more red, and another 4 or 5 were on the road to rot. The lesson is to roast them as soon as you get them. I'm still very happy with my order and look forward to next year when I'll know better to roast them as soon as they arrive!



My pre order was short and sweet. Chose what I wanted, paid and the the bad part...waiting for those delicious chilies to arrive! Well worth the wait. As most of you chili connoisseurs know, you want flavor with your heat. These are the best!

Mary K

My first Hatch Green Chile order and they were absolutely so good. Next order will be a notch down as these were X-Hot. I like heat but these were really hot and I didn't realize how hot these could be since it was my first order...the flavor was excellent and now I know why everyone loves these peppers. Will definitely order again!

Edward C

Very hot like we love it but my batch came with too many red peppers

Paul G

Excellent delivery and excellent chilies. These chilies are not for those who don't want intense heat. They are HOT. They are excellent for enchiladas, salsa, on burgers and other sandwiches. Love them.


The smell coming off the box upon it's delivery was amazing. As we opened the box to grill them I noted some looked gnarled and vaguely poisonous and we were not disappointed. Peeling it in the kitchen cleared the room of all other life forms. It was as hot as I had hoped. Cheers on a great harvest! Thank you for shipping a piece of home to the Pacific Northwest.

Ordered for my son & his friends @ work. They waited anxiously for it to arrive. They all loved it.

This X-hot child was smaller than expected. However, they're are very very hot as advertised. Overall I'm pleased with my chilies and will order again.
