Spanning 11 Greenhouses And 500 Varieties, The World’s Largest Chile Pepper Farm Is Hiding In New Jersey
For many people, Chile peppers are the spice of life. They flavor soups, pep up tacos, and some daring souls will even pop them whole. They run the gamut from mildly zingy to punishingly hot – and just about all of them can be found on one country road in rural New Jersey. The small township of Stockton has only 496 residents – and that means it has more types of pepper than people thanks to one massive farm in New Jersey.
