BIG yields of BIG pods
Reviewed By: Erich (Rifle, CO)
I garden at 5400 ft. in a dry climate in western Colorado. 2013 my Gurney's Big Chile II crop was fantastic. Delicious green chili flavor. Huge yields with huge pods. Beautiful foliage protecting the fruit from the sun that at times can be harsh at this elevation. Will grow these again.

Fantastic Rellenos
Reviewed By: Amy Harrison (Indianapolis, IN)
We grew these chiles last year and loved them so much we're growing them again this year. We stocked our freezer full of green chiles and made some of the best Chile Rellenos we've ever had.
