I have had some that were hotter than a fire cracker I have grown here in Texas.

New Mexico Chile & Ristra

http://www.newmexicochileandristra.c...ory-s/1903.htm

Their prices are reasonable and shipping for seeds is $2.99.
You can calculate shipping by placing seeds in your cart, and on the cart page you can input your zip code and they list shipping options/costs (without going any further.)

Their seeds had 100% germination for me.

Ya'll need to bone up on Hatch chile varieties. Anaheim is one of many varieties, and it is the least appealing. It is mild and unspectacular to me. If you want some flavor and heat you should try Lumbre, Miss Junie, NM64, or Sandia. Even Big Jim is light years better than Anaheim. Lumbre competes with habanero for heat. I blend them for good flavor profile and heat.

Anaheim is the run of the mill pepper restaurants cheap out with when they make things.

I'm growing Big Jim, Lumbre, Joe E Parker and Sandia ( from the ones you mentioned)
this year. Little too early to plant out yet, here 38 tonight, 28 tomorrow night.

Anaheim chiles are New Mexico chiles that migrated to California. I forget the whole story, but a NM guy took come peppers to a friend at Anaheim California way back in the early part of the last century. Hence the name Anaheim. They are very similar but generally milder than the New Mexico varieties such as Big Jim and Sandia.

Default 99¢ Hatches

The "Hatch" chiles bought by the K****r grocery company a few weeks ago were surprisingly hot—roughly, in the range of commercial jalapeño—and really good. The big pods kept ripening to orange, and those would be bagged up for 99¢, total. More than worth it.

I though I started Numex 6-4 seeds, but somehow I think I mixed it up with
shish*to seeds. Well, there's always next year.

Shish!to is a great pepper to have a mix up on.

You may not know exactly what variety you are getting if you buy some marked "Hatch" chiles as Hatch is not a variety but a description of where they were raised. But beware, there is a lot of untruthful advertising going on and a some so called Hatch chile may have never seen the Hatch valley of New Mexico. Just saying.

Excellent point, and the company I declined to advertise for above is demonstrably capable of far worse than false advertising. They did blunder into some good pods, though, and hotter than I would've expected. (I saved seeds, but the chiles were picked green.)

Here are some Hatch grown Miss Junie peppers I snagged at a roadside harvest stand about 3 weeks ago. They were green when I bought them but I let them sit in a big pan and dry out and turn red. I will save some seeds and I will boil the dried peppers in water for 25 minutes, then l will add garlic, salt, oregano and cumin and liquify that mix and then add a rue made of flour heated in oil to thicken. That is the way to make classic red chile sauce from New Mexico. Miss Junie is a fairly hot Hatch type variety so I won't doctor it for more heat. The flavor is euphoric.

That's a nice, enthusiastic description . . . especially for a tomato site. :-)
