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

X-Hot (Lumbre), our hottest variety, is relatively new to the world of New Mexican chile. It is much hotter than our regular Hot (Sandia). X-Hot (Lumbre) is a true scorcher, with each pod coming out blistering hot. Averaging 3-5 inches in length, it is the smallest variety we've ever grown, but it packs the most spice. Its pods are shorter and narrower than our other varieties, but they still have enough meat to roast. X-Hot (Lumbre) was developed by Jimmy Lytle (son of Big Jim Lytle, for whom the world famous Big Jim variety is named).
You don't need to use much of this chile to sufficiently spice up your favorite dishes! As a chopped chile, it packs such a big punch that you can make a pot of enchilada sauce using our Mild (Machete/Joe Parker) chile, then simply sprinkle in a small amount of X-Hot (Lumbre) to crank up the heat level. This variety is very popular due to its intense flavor and extreme heat.
We offer 5, 10, and 25 pound boxes. 25lb boxes are enough for one or two people for a full year, while a 10lb box might only last a few months. Our 5lb box makes for a great gift and ships for free!
Please read the following warnings before placing your order:
  • We guarantee all orders when 2-Day or Overnight shipping is selected, so we compensate our customers accordingly when spoilage/damage occurs.

  • We will update our customers when all pre-orders have been fulfilled and newer orders will begin shipping out.
  • You can place your order now and request to have it put on hold for a later date. Contact us at support@hatch-green-chile.com or (575) 635-4680 to place your order on hold.

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.

Edward S

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

The chilies are delicious and arrived quickly after shipping.


hot and tasty


Great chile. Smaller than other varieties. They are hot.

Martin G

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.

Natasha B

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.
