We’re confident that if people want a chile fix, we can supply it!

Chris Franzoy, President of Young Guns Produce, Inc, one of the largest suppliers of Hatch, New Mexico green chile, is forecasting a great year for chile lovers.

“We’re currently getting the soil ready,” says Franzoy, “and the seed selection for this year is amazing!”

Franzoy says that each variety they plant this year has been improved over the years with the help of the Chile Pepper Institute at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

This year’s varieties include improved chile peppers in their mild, medium, hot and extra hot varieties.

For 2013 they will be using New Mexico 6-4 for their mild varieties, which according to Franzoy has “the most favorable flavor for mild.”

They will be using a new and improved Sandia variety that Franzoy says has a larger and heavier pod than previous varieties, meaning more of the fleshy chile pepper for consumers.

For their medium-heat chile they will be growing the Big Jim variety for 2013.

And, Franzoy says they are continuing to improve their extra hot variety and expects this year to have a chile that “will test around 15,000 scoville units.”

Earlier this year Young Guns Produce, Inc. announced that they will be increasing their green chile crop by 20% over last year’s production to keep up with the growing demand for their chile.

“We’re now supplying Hatch green chile in every state in the continental US,” says Franzoy, “in addition we’re also selling Hatch green chile online. We’re confident that if people want a chile fix, we can supply it!”
