Any info about the Las Cruces chile?

11 years ago

Last year Pepper Joe offered seeds for the Las Cruces chile. My buddy Tom bought a pack and waited till this Spring to give me a seedling. Pepper Joe didn't offer the Las Cruces pepper seeds this year. The plant looks great but I'm not sure what the ripe fruit should look like or really any other info about this elusive plant. All the info I have is that the fruit are jalapeno shaped, thick skinned and not too hot (3-4 out of 10). I will be sure to save seeds from this pepper, since I can;t find seeds any where else on the net.

Here's a pic I took this morning. Thos pods are about 3" long. Any info would be appreciated:
