The NuMex R Naky chile is an Anaheim-type hybrid created by Dr. Nakayama of New Mexico State University in 1985.

It is a cross between the ‘Rio Grande 21’, the ‘New Mexico 6-4’ and a Bulgarian paprika. Pepper cultivars developed at the New Mexico State University carry the designation ‘NuMex’.

The fruit grows to 5-6 inches and has a mild flavor. In comparison, the New Mex R Naky prodices significantly more volume per acre than the New Mexico 6-4, and has a brighter red color.

CULINARY USE: Great for stuffing or roasting.
