Recently it has been changed back to it’s true name “Kewa Pueblo”. It is at an elevation of 5,200 feet above sea level just 25 miles southwest of Santa Fe, New Mexico. The language spoken by natives is Keres a dialect of the Keresan language. On August 4th they have a celebration to honor Saint Dominic who is their patron saint. The Santa Domingo chiles are truly native and mature early and vary in shape and size. Some are short and wide and others are longer and thinner. The peppers mature early and are 3 to 5 inches in length ripening from green to red. Great for cooking while green but more suitable for drying when red. The flavor has much depth and is slightly sweet. The Santa Domingo chile plants grow 2 to 3 feet tall and are very productive. Studies at NMSU show it reaching heat levels over 16,000 SHU.

At Refining Fire Chiles we isolate our seed production plants to avoid cross-pollination with other chile species. If you want to grow your own chiles, you can purchase seeds right here, or full plants (March-August) and have fresh chiles by September.
