Wah hapin ?
Now is getting close to growing pepper season !
I forgot to grow Poblano in my grow out batch. Planted out some later and now got baby sprouts .
Poblano is great on the grill, stuffed, and just plain eating at every stage.

Of the 12 varieties of hot and sweet peppers I started, only the Chinese Giant and Pablanos didn't germinate. I will have to purchase the plant starts this year. Fortunately, they are very easy to find around me.

I think pablanos are one of the most flavorful peppers. I'm getting hungry just thinking about them.

I've got plenty of Poblano pepper seeds I saved from big fruits this past season if anybody wants some. Don't know which variety it is, but they was big and good and not too, too hot.

I have some growing in party cups and will look at transplants locally. I have not had the best of luck with Poblanos so far. I'm not giving up though. I would rather grow Poblano than Bells.

This is my first year of growing Pablanos and am trying Big Jim's. I am not sure what to expect and am hoping they aren't too hot. I love chili rellanos and just general stuffing them. Anyone have experience growing Big Jim's? I tried the search function but apparently it doesn't like 3 letter words.

Try putting double quotes around the phrase "Big Jim". Might work.

I think Big Jim's are great for rellenos, but I don't think they are poblanos. I think they​ are "NuMex" .

Right. Big Jim is not a poblano but a cross of several varieties developed at the Chili Institute.

Never seen one.

Big Jims are a New Mexico variety similar to Anaheim but a little hotter. They are the staple variety for chile rellanos here in New Mexico and it seems weird when ordering rellanos other places to find that they are made with poblanos (but still very good). In this area and elsewhere they may be legally marketed as Hatch Chile only if they were grown in the Hatch area.

Great info folks, thank you. My only concern at this point is too much heat for my wife. But maybe I can toughen her up a little. Creeker, does Hatch grow several varieties of chilis? I have bought Hatch chilis the last couple of years but they look more like an Anaheim but are smaller than what I thought Big Jims were.

I grew Numex Big Jim (I believe that's their "official" name) and Aneheim back to back. Heat and flavor were about identical, but the Numex Big Jims were larger and the plants produced more.

"Hatch chilis" are Anaheims - usually. Some growers produce similar varieties. The hallmark is not the variety, but that they are grown in or near the Hatch Valley. It's a marketing designation only.

Just like the vidalia onions which are really from the start a Texas onion.
You cannot grow a Hatch chili any place but Hatch New Mexico.
This does NOT mean you cant grow a good chili.
We get truck loads of them in here in the summer at a good price.
No way will I waste my time growing them.
