The Q&A Archives: Chili Peppers for Wreaths

Question: I am interested in growing "New Mexico Chilies" the ones used to make the decorative wreathes seen all over the southwest. Can you give me a source?

Answer: Burpees 'Big Red Hybrid' (a unique cayenne type) is good for drying and making wreaths. A source of New Mexico type chilis as well as many other peppers is:
