Thank you for your patience during this time.


The Thunder Cacho Brown pepper is a cross developed by master grower Jes Christiansen of Denmark between the Thunder Mountain Longhorn and Cacho Negro peppers. It ripens from green to brown and closely resembles the parent variety Thunder Mountain Longhorn (TMLH). The difference is that it is much thicker so it can be more versatile than the TMLH which is thinner and dries when it ripens to full color. The Thunder Cacho Brown Chile can be used in sauces, stir fry and as a dried seasoning. It has a medium heat level and fruity smoky flavor tones. VERY productive.
