The life of a ristra
When the weather starts turning colder fresh ristras are being freshly tied. These ristras are made using fresh chile just picked from the plant. These are still full of water. These ristras are very heavy, are a beautiful vibrant red. and will become moldy if not hung out in the sun. We can special order fresh ristras in any size, but shipping on these will be expensive due the weight of the ristra and the urgency for it to ship rapidly to avoid rotting inside the box. If you want to special order a fresh ristra during season please call us at 505-603-3359
The ristras we ship unless special ordered are dry, and can be boxed.
As chile dries the color will darken and/or lighten, and continue to change throughout the natural lifespan of the dry chile.
New Mexico has 1 chile harvest per year in the fall. The farther away from fall you are,the older the chile will be. Please expect variations in color accordingly.

Very cute. December 23, 2017
Reviewer: Kay from Portales, NM United States  
During a recent visit, my relatives LOVED the ristras everywhere in New Mexico, but sending them home with one that's full-size would've been too out of place back east. This one is adorable, and small enough to be a nice, bright accent without dominating their kitchen. And it's edible, so it's useful as well as pretty!
