Pasilla is the dried form of the Chilaca chile and means little raisin in Spanish. This refers to its appearance with dark brown wrinkled skin. Use the Chilaca pepper fresh for enchilada sauce or salsas. Use the dried powdered Pasilla peppers in Mexican mole sauces. This heirloom is easy to grow. 

Narrow 8-10" peppers are mildly hot with a sweet flavor when fresh, and a rich smoky flavor when dried. Tall 30" plants produce dark green chiles that turn dark brown when mature. Capsicum annuum (85 days) Open-pollinated - Heirloom - Non-GMO

Heat Level: Mild  Scoville 1,000 - 2,000

~ Packet contains 10 seeds. 

In early spring, start seeds indoors 8 weeks prior to warm nightly temperatures. Place the seeds in sterile media and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, bright light and keep moist at all times. Seeds will germinate in 7 - 21 days. Transplant seedlings into pots and grow until there are 6 true leaves on the plant. Plant them directly into rich soil, 30” apart in the garden, or into large 5 gallon containers. Harvest chiles when they are dark green to almost brown. 


All of our seeds are GMO-free.

Delicious

Pasilla are very flavorful peppers – easy to dry and very productive plants. We like crushing the dried chiles into soups and sauces, they add so much flavor. Highly recommend, I grow them every year. Your seeds are great.

Excellent peppers for chile powder blend

1st year trying these Chile Seeds. Seeded 4 cells of these Chile's, Shared 2 and planted 2 in our garden. Plants reached 36"+ in height with heavy yields. I wasn't wild about eating them fresh but we loaded 3 trays in our dehydrator and now have 2 zip lock bags of dried chiles!

Great pepper!

We’ve been growing this pepper for 15 years at least at our garden center. It has its own followers, people come in year after year for it. We do not sell many but those that know it want it, employees and customers alike. Productive and very nice flavor.
