Medium, (Joe Parker) is a variety of chile developed at New Mexico State University. It is a medium sized, meaty variety ranging in size from 5 to 8 inches in length. Unlike Big Jim, Joe Parker is relatively consistent in heat and doesn’t vary much from one pod to the next. It is great for rellenos, but won’t yield the huge half pounders that Big Jim does. Like all our other roasted offerings, our Joe Parker is flame roasted in the traditional New Mexican style then gently peeled by hand. Packages are 1lb vacuum sealed freezer bags which are re-sealable like a zip lock. Our roasted, frozen chile is shipped in insulated containers on gel packs and typically delivered in 1-3 days from the time it leaves our freezers.
Our medium hatch green chile (Joe Parker), like all our flame roasted chile, qualifies for free shipping! Orders which ship free typically ship via FedEx Home Delivery (a ground service) but we still guarantee that they will arrive frozen and in great shape! Unlike our fresh green chile, we can just add extra dry ice for the additional days in transit. This practice saves our customers a LOT of money on shipping and we see great results with it. If you’d like to upgrade your roasted order to an air shipping method, please email us after placing your order and we’ll get you a quote for the additional shipping charges.
