The Barker’s Hot chili pepper is an extra-hot chile, the hottest of the Anaheim/ New Mexico variety, and it has great flavor.

They grow to 5-7 inches in length, and can be used just as you would use an Anaheim, with an extra punch. This variety originally comes from a selection of native New Mexican chiles, so it naturally grows well in very hot, dry climates.

The peppers ripen from green to red, with the red fruits growing hotter than the green ones.

The fruits have thin skins, making them great for roasting, frying whole, canning or stuffing. They also make deliciously hot salsa.

Barker's Hot Chili Peppers From Hatch, NM

    We stop and get a bushel bag of Hatch peppers roasted once a year when driving through to AZ. I’ve tried most of the hottest Hatch peppers but came across one new to me last September. The Lumbre. It’s as hot as any I’ve had including the Barker x-hot, but I liked it better because it has thick flesh and after roasting, even if frozen with the skin on, it slides off much more easily and leaves you with more pepper flesh. Not sure if it’s a new variety but certainly he first I’ve gotten when I’ve asked for their hottest.

    Would sure like to buy these peppers. Or probably grow if Nebraska was right climate. And help or advice?
