Gary and the boys in town for a chile run and some ristras!

 

Hatch Chile Festival 2012
Always on Labor Day weekend - Saturday and Sunday only!

Hatch, New Mexico U.S.A. 

Why HATCH?

Of all the pepper (chile/chili) centers in the world, Hatch, New Mexico, stands the tallest.  Hatch's plant breeders and botanists are most unique.  

Hatch is widely known as the designer chile/chili headquarters because Mesilla Valley farmers are constantly developing new breeds and various tastes to satisfy a steady throng of new converts.

They tailor-make chilis, which are then introduced to the locals and consumers from all over the US and many, many countries around the world like NEW car models via e-commerce and the internet. 

Here in New Mexico, many say just by tasting a chili/chile  pod they can tell whether the pepper was grown North, or South of Interstate 40 (formerly US Route 66), which runs from East toward Texas and West toward Arizona.  Believe it or not, that little rule also holds true for South and North Korea. 

One more intriguing fact is that Thai's eat more peppers than any other people in the world (an average of 5 grams per person daily in Thailand) but residents in the US Southwest are closing the gap quickly.
