This variety is a straight medium with little to no heat level variance. It is a slightly smaller variety than our Big Jim without the (sometimes) surprising heat level changes. NuMex Joe Parker is the perfect choice for the chile aficionados who want a little more heat than a straight mild variety would yield, but still like some spice. Joe Parker tends to get hotter as the season rolls on, so if you want a hearty medium heat, please request that we ship your order towards the end of the season. Joe Parker typically yields consistent pods between 5-8 inches long, making it a great choice for chile rellenos (technically chiles relleno if you want to be picky about your spanish grammar).
Pre-Orders for fresh chile will start shipping in the July-August time-frame. Fresh is shipped each Tuesday.
