The Mulato Island Pepper, or Mulato Isleno, is similar in shape and flavor to the Ancho, but has a sweeter taste and often grows a bit longer (to about 4 inches). Like the Ancho Poblano, the Mulato Island is commonly dried and has been used in Mexican cooking for hundreds of years. It makes a great chili powder or unique hot sauce addition or mole sauce. Mulato chiles ripen to dark brown and have a zesty mild heat (about half as hot as a Jalapeño) and flavor that has been described as “like chocolate or licorice, with a hint of cherry and tobacco.”

I ordered and seeded Mulato Island and Holy Moly seeds. After 3 weeks in the potting soil, the germination rate is 12.5%. What gives? Very frustrating.

Hello, hot peppers can be tricky to germinate. Here is the process we follow and see 95% success rate across the board. They are very particular to soil temp requiring 80-85* and can take up to 6 weeks to germinate. I hope this helps! Let us know what other questions you may have!
