Pasilla Bajio / Chilaca Chile Seeds
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 this pepper fresh for enchilada sauce or salsas. Use it dried and powdered 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

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.
