FAQs about Hatch chile peppers
When Dr. Fabián Garcia was experimenting with new cultivars of chiles that would do well in the New Mexico region, he also had another aim in mind: to grow larger and milder peppers that were perfect for canning. Consequently, the Hatch chile pepper is relatively low on the heat scale compared to other chile cultivars.
However, since Hatch chile peppers consist of many different varieties, their level of hotness can range from about one-third as hot as a typical jalapeno pepper to almost as hot as a jalapeno pepper — which is relatively mild as far as chiles go.
When they're green, Hatch chiles have a mild, spicy-sweet flavor with an added pungency, similar to an onion or garlic. As they mature into red chiles, they retain this flavor but offer extra layers of flavor, such as earthiness and increased spiciness. Also, whereas younger Hatch chiles tend to provide a front heat, the spiciness of the mature chile lies at the back of the mouth or throat.
To cash in on the popularity of Hatch chiles, some distributors started to use the name Hatch for chiles that were not grown in the region. Fortunately, a law protects the Hatch farmers and residents at large. This law states that chile pods have to be grown in Hatch for them to bear the name Hatch.
