Big Bang-(Capsicum annuum)-This is one of four Space Chiles we are selling. The Space Chiles are from China. China sent seeds of many plant types into space and claim that cosmic radiation increased everything from germination and growing rates. Also increased productivity as well. The Big Bang gets much larger the New Mexico varieties it resembles. They ripen from light green to red and the peppers can get over 10 inches long. They are best eaten when green. Similar in flavor to other green chiles but sweeter with a mild heat level. The Big Bang Space Chiles are ideal for roasting and stuffing. The Big Bang Chile plants grow just over 3 feet tall. They need to be staked to support the weight of the chiles.
