The Guajillo pepper is one of the most popular chiles grown in Mexico. They have a great flavor and a mild heat that makes these peppers versatile in much of Mexican cooking.

The Guajillo pepper plant grows around 2-3 ft. tall and produces many pods that are 3-6" long and 1" wide. They have a pendant-looking shape, tapering off to a point, with a raisin-like, wrinkly texture and a brownish-red color as they ripen to maturity.

What's unique about the Guajillo pepper is that it's commonly referred to as the dried version of the Mirasol pepper. But don't get confused, as the Mirasol pepper has slight differences in appearance, flavor, and heat level. The Guajillo chili has sweet, fruity tones, and then it hits you with a sharp, savory mild heat. The dried Guajillo chiles have a unique process as they are dried first as whole pods, then crush to a powder to make a seasoning paste. This pepper can be used to create mole sauces, salsas, sauces, and more!

Enjoy fantastic pepper flavors and low heat with our Mild Pepper Seeds and Mild Pepper Plants!

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
