Authentic Hatch Peppers are truly a Southwestern favorite. They are named after the original growing area in Hatch, New Mexico. Chefs say that the intense sunlight and cool nights in this valley result in a uniquely flavored pepper that's unrivaled by any other.
These peppers are a famous Southwestern variety of Anaheim pepper with meaty flesh and complex heat. When roasted, Hatch offers up a smooth balance of smokey sweetness and spice. Melissa's offers these unique peppers in mild, medium, hot and extra hot.
