We grow several varieties for our medium chile, including Big Jim and Charger. Both make for a great relleno chile as they are large and meaty. These varieties also have inconsistent heat levels from pod to pod and from year to year. If you're looking for a solid kick, we recommend you opt for our Hot (Sandia/G76) rather than our medium.
Big Jim and Charger pods can grow between 8 and 14 inches in length. They can vary on the scoville scale from 500-3,500 SHU. We sell Big Jim and Charger in 5, 10, and 25 pound boxes. 25lb boxes of fresh Big Jim are enough for one or two people for a full year while a 10lb box of Big Jim might only last a few months. Our 5lb box of Big Jim makes a great gift and ships free!
