New Mexico's chile harvest underway

-A A +A

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — The chile harvest has begun as grocery stores in Las Cruces are starting to roll out roasters in preparation for green chile sales.

The Las Cruces Sun-News reports that this year's crop is being sold at roadside stands in the Hatch area.

A U.S. Department of Agriculture report says that last week the New Mexico chile harvest was 11 percent complete.

Retailers and canneries this year are subject to a new law that prevents falsely advertising that chile is New Mexico-grown, if it's from elsewhere.

Katie Goetz, spokeswoman for the New Mexico Department of Agriculture, says inspectors have already found some violators and will be on the lookout as the season continues.
