Just google the Chili Pepper Institute. They are selling Heritage Big Jim's and Heritage New Mex. 6-4. They are like the original peppers which evidently change as years go by. Anaheims is a family of chili peppers the Big Jim's and 6-4's are not mild.

I bought 2 10# cases of mild this year for $5 a case. I am not sure of variety, but we really like them. I made the mistake of getting XHot last year and we couldn't enjoy them, tooooo HOT! The Mild still have some heat, but not intense and perfect for us.

I blend them for good flavor profile and heat.
I agree to a point Charley. Anaheims are really nothing more than mellow poblanos, Hatch chilies can be a multitude of things ... it's a term that is too generic for my liking (need more specifics). Big Jim is a fantastic variety by the way. I just dislike the whole Green Hatch / Red Hatch thing that they market... and then they just add the mild, medium and hot description. I want to know what the heck I am growing, not a generic term for marketing. I also think it's not Hatch unless grown in Hatch soil (but you'll get your own taste where ever you are).

Highly accurate for a Northerner or for that matter anyone.
I give you an A +, plus a pass on essay questions.
But a Anaheims are not Poblanos.

Charley is spot on too.

To get authentic New Mexico chile seeds (as well as many others) go to chilepepperinstitute.org. They have everything in degrees of heat from Big Jim to
Trinidad Scorpion. Get the ones marked Heritage where available. You may find prices a little high but they are authentic and include shipping.
