The Pasilla pepper, known as “little raisin” in Spanish, is referred to the dried format of the Chilaca Pepper which is a popular Mexican fresh pepper. Pasilla peppers shouldn't be confused with the Ancho pepper, where the Ancho pepper is the dried format of the Poblano pepper. 

These pepper plants grow up to 3 ft. tall and produce great yields of long, slim peppers that have a deep shade of dark green, almost black. Pods reach up to 8" long, with a select few growing up to 14" long! These black peppers have a shiny smooth surface to them and taper off to a point.

Pasilla peppers feature a smoky, earthy flavor with surprising hints of raisins and smoky cocoa. They are very popular in Mexican cuisines, and are used to make mole sauces, salsas, and seasonings, and can be used in a variety of meat dishes. These peppers have a bit of heat but are not very hot, as these range from 250-4,000 SHUs. For reference, the Jalapeno pepper is 5,000 SHUs. Grab some of these amazing mild pepper seeds today!

No blooms yet

I can't really say much about these seed. It has been a strange year. My garden is so far behind. Most plants just are not growing. That being said, the Pasilla plants are looking good but not very big yest & no blooms. I will b glad to let you know more at the end of the season.

All grew!

Michelle Belgard
Excellent germination rate

Did use a heat mat, but sprouted quickly. Plants look healthy and will soon go into the garden.

Andrea Larsen
Excellent Seeds!

The seeds were shipped out quickly and arrived faster than I expected. I had great germination results. Also, the free packet of hot chili pepper seeds was a nice bonus. Will definitely order again next year.

This was a gift to my son and he loved all the different varieties of pepper seeds!
