Mild, solid & fleshy up to 7 inches long. This is one of the most common commercially grown chiles in New Mexico and is also known as Hatch Chilli. It is often grilled by the roadside and sold in "trunk loads" in New Mexico, unfortunately we don't grow quite enough to do that here.

Information

This New Mexico variety was named after Mr. Joe E. Parker who helped to evaluate this selection of chilli. It originally came from one plant selected from a field of open-pollinated “New Mexico 6-4” peppers. The chillies grow to about 8 inches in length and 1.8 inches in width, and can be used either in their green or red stage. Although similar to the New Mexico 6-4 in flavor and heat, green color, and size, it is generally preferable to the New Mexico 6-4 because of its higher yield, its thicker walls, and its ability to continue to produce red chiles after the initial green fruit harvest. Recipe: Joe-E-Parker and Poblano chillies are very mild chillies that can be skinned and stuffed with a filling of your choice, covered in an egg and flour batter and then shallow fried. For the filling you could use cheese or a herby minced meat mixture to make a Mexican dish known as "Rellenos".

Storage

Fresh chillies keep for a couple of weeks in the fridge. All chillies freeze well and slicing and pickling is another way to preserve chillies.
