Frozen- All frozen orders are shipped in insulated lined cartons. Frozen Gel packs are added. Orders are shipped only on Monday or Tuesday to ensure prompt delivery.
FRESH- Fresh Chile are shipped usually within hours of being harvested. Our cartons are lined with a soft gunny sack. We will not ship more than of 10 lbs to a container to prevent bruising or crushing. We go through each sack of Chile by hand and remove broken, bruised and Chiles turning red. Our Fresh Chiles are gently hand packed.
Beware, FRESH Chile turn colors fast. Some Chiles turn faster than others.....our Sandia and Barker (Hot & XHot) Chiles turn faster than the Bigger Mild Chiles. Some Chiles will even turn from green to red in as fast as 2 to 3. You may see some red. (in the Chiles).
