“The demand for Hatch green chile is growing fast,” said Franzoy, whose family has been growing green chile in the Hatch region since 1930.

According to a recent report in the Albuquerque Business Journal the popularity of New Mexico Green Chile has spread throughout the United States.

Young Guns Hatch Green Chile is found in every state in the nation, says Franzoy, who has been working hard to put his chile in front of new customers.

“During our harvest we travel around the U.S. and put on live roasting and cooking Demonstrations.”
