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!

  • 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.
