The Mulato Island Pepper, or Mulato Isleno, is similar in shape and flavor to the Ancho Poblano pepper, but has a slightly different flavor and completely different color as it reaches maturity. This variety will be your next pepper obsession.

Growing up to 3 ft. tall, Mulato Island Chile Plants produce 4" long pods that have smooth, shiny skin and a crisp texture. Unlike other Poblanos that ripen from green to red, this variety actually ripens from green to a dark brown when they're ready to be picked. You'll be pleasantly surprised by this new color change!

Mulato Island chiles also have a sweeter, zestier taste compared to other Poblanos, with a flavor that has been described as "like chocolate or licorice, with a hint of cherry and tobacco." Boy, that's a lot of flavors to enjoy! These peppers are commonly dried and have been used in Mexican cooking for hundreds of years. It makes a great chili powder or unique hot sauce addition or mole sauce.

  • 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.
