[10-2-2022] Microsoft Rewards Bing Homepage Quiz Question: Fall in New Mexico also coincides with the harvest of what variety of pepper that has become synonymous with the state?
The given options are:
Correct Answer: Hatch
Info: New Mexico chiles grown in the Hatch Valley (an area stretching north and south along the Rio Grande from Arrey, New Mexico, in the north to Tonuco Mountain to the southeast of Hatch, New Mexico), known as Hatch chiles, are a staple of New Mexican cuisine and an essential part of the state’s economy and culture. The soil and growing conditions in the Hatch Valley create a unique terroir that contributes to the chile flavor. Some form of this chile pepper has been cultivated in the area for centuries, but the modern Hatch chile was developed in the late 1890s by horticulturalists at what is now New Mexico State University. The chiles can be harvested and eaten green or red (when ripened). Both are made into sauces of equivalent colors, making the most common question in local restaurants: ‘Green or red?’
