Detroit Jutiapa Chile

NEW for 2019

I obtained seed for this chile pepper at a farming conference in Michigan last winter  (2018). The seed was given to me by a organic Mexican farmer who grows crops in Detroit’s inner city. He stated that he had brought seed for this pepper back from a visit to Mexico and had been growing and saving seed for a number of years, claiming that it had become quite adapted to Michigan’s climate. The plants grow to about 3 foot in height and form a wide canopy. The earliest ripe fruit I harvested was in late September and harvest continued right up until the end of October. These average in size from 3″ long to 6″ and turn red at maturity. They are very thin walled and excellent for drying. The flavor is rich, with a mild heat, somewhat similar to a poblano.
