The Mosco chile pepper is a delicious meaty Annuum variety that you won’t regret growing. It has a nice medium heat with a unique sweet flavor that makes for one amazing red chile sauce. It was developed in Pueblo, Colorado over a number of years using selective breeding and is now a larger version of the Mirasol chile. Today many consider it the official pepper of Colorado. The Pueblo Mosco tends to have thicker walls than the Hatch chile, making it easy to roast. Pods grow up to 5-8 inches long and ripen red. Plants grow to about 30 inches tall. These Mosco peppers grow quickly and do well in high elevation and short or dry climates.
