NuMex Big Jim-(Capsicum annuum)-This pepper was developed in the 1970s by the Chile Pepper Institute at New Mexico State University by Dr. Nakayama. A decade Later it was improved by the devoted New Mexico farmer Jim Lytle. In 1987 it was approved by the New Mexico Crop Association and named after Jim in his honor. Jim passed away that year but left us with one of the finest Roasting peppers! It has been listed in the Guinness World Book of Records as the largest pod producer! The peppers can get over 12 inches long and weigh over 4 ounces. The NuMex Big Jim Chile plants only get just over 2 feet tall but can produce as many as 30 peppers per plant. They have a mild to medium heat and ripen from green to red. Like any Hatch Chile they get a rich savory flavor when roasted. Ideal for stuffing! The Big Jim is used to make Chile Con Queso, Chile Rellenos and Chile Verde. But has been used in fresh salsas, soups and salads as well!
