Hatch Green Mild - NM 6-4 Chile Seeds
The most popular green chile to grow because of its mild heat content and it matures early and grows well in short seasons. Hatch Green Mild - NM 6-4 has always been the standard for open-pollinated mild green chile. It is such a wonderful variety that it remains very similar to its improved cousin NuMex Heritage 6-4. Pods are 6" long with thick fleshy walls and grow on 30” plants. A large amount of Hatch Green Mild can be added to recipes for delicious and traditional flavor and aroma with mild heat and not the burn of hotter varieties.

In early spring, start seeds indoors 8 weeks prior to warm nightly temperatures. Place the seeds in sterile media and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, bright light and keep moist at all times. Seeds will germinate in 7 - 21 days. Transplant seedlings into pots and grow until there are 6 true leaves on the plant. Plant them directly into rich soil, 30” apart or into large 5 gallon containers. Harvest chiles when they are green. If left on the plant a couple more weeks, the chiles will turn red at full maturity.
