From northern NM at 6,300'. A native New Mexico chile. Mild-medium heat, with a complex, slightly sweet flavor when red.
While land-race varieties are genetically distinct from commercial chile cultivars, there is evidence that cross-pollination has occurred between the landrace-types and commercial cultivars, potentially threatening the distinction of these varieties.
