Numex Big Jim Pepper * Largest Chile Pepper * Hot * 12 Inches * 10 Seeds *

THIS LISTING IS FOR 10 SEEDS OF NUMEX BIG JIM PEPPER Generally considered the world's largest chile, fruits of the Big Jim often grow over 1ft, and have topped even 18" long! Originally bred from the New Mexico Chile, this variety is a favorite for huge fruits and nice flavor. Heat level varies, but is generally fairly hot. Red ripening. 80 days. The perfect pepper for chiles rellenos, grilling or stuffing, Big Jim delivers a perfect medium heat, a bit milder than an average jalapeño. A hardy and vigorous introduction from the chili pepper breeding project at New Mexico State University. SCOVILLE HEAT UNITS: 2,500-3,000 SHU This giant chili pepper was introduced by New Mexico State University in the 1970s as a cross between a few different types of local chiles and a Peruvian chile. They measure 10-12” and mature to red, but are usually harvested and used when green. The peppers have actually been listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the largest chile ever grown. Big Jim chili peppers are about as hot as a milder jalapeno pepper, so you’ll get a bit of heat, but not very much, depending on your heat tolerance and preference.
