NUMEX ESPANOLA IMPROVED

Species: Annuum | Origin: New Mexico | Heat: Mild


Developed by Dr Matta and Dr Nakayama in 1984, this cultivar resulted from a hybridization between 'Sandia' and a northern New Mexico strain of chile. It is an early maturing red chile cultivar (55 days) and is grown for its earliness. The 5-7in fruits have a mild pungency (1500 to 2000 Scoville units)
