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?

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:

The Pepper Gal; P.O. Box 23006; Ft. Lauderdale, Florida 33307-3006; (954) 537-5540.

Thanks for the question!
