Bring a touch of New Mexico to your home with Melissa’s decorative Dried Hatch Pepper Ristras. Made with authentic Hatch peppers, this ristra is a stunning addition to any home décor. The peppers are hand-picked and dried, then strung together on a sturdy twine. The ristra is finished with a protective coating to give it a glossy shine and keep it looking its best.

Dried Hatch Pepper Ristras are an iconic tradition in the southwest, particularly in New Mexico, where prized Hatch peppers grow in abundance in peak summer months. Although edibility was the original purpose, today, ristras are primarily used as décor and are regarded as a symbol of prosperity and hospitality.

Melissa’s ristras are 18 inches long and are intended for decorative purposes only—they are not edible.

When stored in a dry area with little humidity out of direct sunlight, ristras can last for several years. To dust, mist with water and allow to air dry.
