Hatch Lumbre-(Capsicum annuum)-The Lumbre is also called Hatch Double X
Hot. These are considered the hottest of the hatch type chiles
measured as high as 10,000 SHU on the heat scale. Twice as hot as most
other Hatch types. The chiles are not as large as other New Mexico types
usually averaging about 5 to 6 inches in length. But they are still
very productive. They might not be the ideal pepper for making Chile
Rellenos but if you want a Hatch Chile type with more heat than this is
the chile for you to grow in your garden!! The Hatch Lumbre chile plants
grow just under 3 feet tall. NOTE: Chiles or products made with chiles
cannot be labelled as Hatch unless they are grown in the Hatch Valley.
These seeds for this plant were obtained from a grower in that region.
