The Mosco Chile Pepper is a delicious meaty Annuum variety developed in Pueblo, Colorado over a number of years using selective breeding, and is now considered the official pepper of the state of Colorado! This is a larger version of the Mirasol chile that you won't regret growing.

These pepper plants grow up to around 2-1/2 feet tall, growing much faster in high elevation and short/dry climates. You'll see these pods grow up to 5-8" long with thick walls and smooth skin, ripening from a green to a bright red color at maturity.

Mosco Chiles have a nice medium heat with a unique sweet flavor that makes for one amazing red chile sauce. These thick-walled peppers make it easy to roast, grill, or even dry into a nice mild chili powder.

Mosco Seeds

I sowed 200 Mosco seeds in germination soil, on a heat mat, in a fully automated green house at a botanic gardens. 131 germinated giving a rate of 65.5% I was expecting at least 75%. They had the worst germination rate of the 4 varieties purchased from here. They have been transplanted, along with the other varieties, so I'm excited to see how they do now

  • 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.
