Determining the cause of the retreat to ice ages and the abrupt warmings that spawned the interglacial periods has remained controversial for many decades. Discovery — if that is potentially what is occurring here — is worth a look. Sokeland, Scientists generally state that debris from supernova does not impact our planet. The timing of impact for supernova debris streams allows the identification of the times and duration time periods for supernova debris streams impacting our planet.
History[ edit ] Many types of peppers were first grown by Pueblo residents, who continue to grow their own peppers each with a distinct pungency, sweetness, taste, and heat.
For example, the Zia Pueblo pepper has a bitter-sweet flavor when it matures into its red color.
When the Spanish arrived, they introduced European cultivation techniques to the chile pepper, and eventually created cultivars in their towns. Selective breeding began with 14 lineages of 'Pasilla''Colorado', and 'Negro' cultivars, from throughout New Mexico and Southern Colorado.
These first commercially viable peppers were created to have a "larger smoother, fleshier, more tapering and shoulderless pod for canning purposes. Altitude, climate, soil, and acreage affects a crop's taste and heartiness, making the New Mexican region unique for plant propagation.
The Rio Grande bosquemountainsand high deserts provide the appropriate regional environment for growing chiles. To ensure that a variety's lineage remains disease-resistant and maintains optimal growth within its heritage region, seeds from specific plants are carefully selected.
An example of a New Mexican chile grown outside the state is the 'Anaheim' pepper which are extremely resilient in multiple altitudes. A quirky aspect of the New Mexico chile pepper regards reintroducing seeds from their heritage soil since each successive generation becomes susceptible to disease and it loses its flavor.
Therefore, chile pepper farmers usually order seeds from their heritage soils, every few generations, to reinvigorate their crop. This allows the New Mexico chile pepper growers to perpetuate successful productions.
New Mexico chile peppers grown in New Mexico are the most sought after, since their flavor, texture, and hardiness are heavily dependent on their growing environment. The peppers were originally grown by the Pueblo, and each of their distinct Pueblo peppers grows best in its heritage soil.
This same trend has continued with other New Mexico chile peppers, those grown by the farmers among the Spanish, Mexican, and American frontiersmen. Among the New Mexico-grown chile peppers, the ones with the most accolades are grown along the Rio Grande, especially along the Hatch Valley.
The program tries to protect New Mexico chile consumers from falsely labeled products, while protecting farmers from a potential diminishing of demand, and to allow larger amounts of New Mexico chile to be grown within the state.
Since the program is rather new, it has garnered some criticism, especially in regard to restricting smaller farmers who have been growing peppers from lineages of more than years of seeds.
The soil and growing conditions in the Hatch Valley create a unique terroir  which contributes to the flavor of chile grown there. Most of the varieties of chile cultivated in the Hatch Valley have been developed at New Mexico State University over the last years.
Hatch chile can be purchased locally in many parts of the Southwest, and is distributed throughout the United States by companies such as World Variety Produce. Other distributors sometimes use the "Hatch" name, but do not actually grow and process their chile in the Hatch Valley.
The Acoma Pueblo chile pepper is mild, with a lightly flavorful pungency. The Zia Pueblo chile pepper becomes a bitter-sweet flavor when it matures into its red color, and its heat is similar to the 'Heritage '. They are distinct in and of themselves, but are not related to New Mexico chile.
