Guajillo chile peppers are very common to Mexican cooking, and are the workhorse of chiles with a lot of dazzle. The Guajillo, Ancho (dried Poblano), and Pasilla are referred to as the "Holy Trinity of Chiles". They are all used together to make authentic Mexican mole sauces.

Pods grow to 4-6" long with thin flesh and shiny reddish brown color. They have a very distinctive sweet heat flavor. Plants are very productive and grow well in dry climates. Capsicum annuum (75 days)

Heat Level: Medium  Scoville 3,000 - 5,000

~ Packet contains 10 seeds. 

In early spring, start seeds indoors 8 weeks prior to warm nightly temperatures. Soak seeds in water overnight then place the seeds in seedling mix and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, bright light and keep the soil moist at all times. cover with a humidity dome or plastic wrap. Seeds will germinate in 14 - 21 days. Transplant seedlings into pots and grow until there are 6 true leaves on the plant. Plant them directly into warm rich soil, 30” apart, or into large 5-gallon containers—Harvest peppers when they are red. 


All of our seeds are GMO-free.

Love them!

I ordered the seeds in 2022, for planting in 2023. Sandia was so generous with the amount of seeds I received in the packet, twice the amount I was expecting. The germination was 100%, and wow! The amount of peppers I got from 10 plants was incredible, especially for our northern climate! I had lots to give away. Mostly I dehydrated them when they ripened and turned them into pepper flakes, (just the aroma of them makes my day!) but I also stored some dried peppers in vacuum sealed jars. Those plants kept on producing heavily until the frost finally killed them. I still have many seeds left, and have planted again this year. Still germinating perfectly! I can't recommend them highly enough!

Special pepper

Thanks for selling these seeds so I can grow them in my garden in Colorado. They grow very well here, and dry nicely for storing for winter use.

Family favorite

We love growing these to dry and grind into pepper flakes and powder which is perfect for adding to all sorts of dishes to kick up the flavor and add a little bit of heat. We grow these every year, thank you for the exceptional seeds with great germination.

Over the top good

Ours grew to over 6 ft tall! Lots of fruit. These are great roasted and used for salsa.

Good peppers, difficult plant

The peppers are good and abundant. The plants are large and lanky and (in my experience) require a lot of support. Probably not ideal for containers or smaller spaces like balconies/small porches. I would grow these again but not until I have a proper garden.
