Pueblo – Chile harvesting season is almost here and over at Musso Farms in Pueblo they’re getting a head start!

Thanks to a crop of transplant chiles you can get your fix a little early this year.

These special chiles were planted in a greenhouse in March and transplanted to the fields later on, but don’t worry!  We’re assured that they’re just as good!

Farmers will harvest the chiles planted by seed about a month later.

Chiles are already on the market,  so be sure to stop by to pick up your own Pueblo Chiles. You can celebrate the Pueblo Chile at the 24th Annual Chile and Frijoles Festival September 21st – 23rd, 2018.
