The Chile Pepper Institute Teaching Garden
The Chile Pepper Institute (CPI) is the only international organization devoted to education, research and information related to chile peppers.
The Institute was established at New Mexico State University in 1992 as the place for chile aficionados to find answers to "all things chile pepper."
New Mexico State University is also the place where chile pepper research has been ongoing since Dr. Fabián García began standardizing chile pepper varieties in 1888. Dr. García is widely considered to be the father of the U.S. Mexican food industry.
Chile pepper research is conducted at the Fabián García Horticultural Science Center, where the Chile Pepper Institute also maintains the Amy Goldman Fowler Teaching Garden. Every summer and fall visitors can find more than 150 varieties of chile peppers growing here.
We are located on the campus of New Mexico State University.
