Pasilla Bajio Mild Chili Pepper - Heirloom seeds


Pasilla Bajio pepper (Caspsicum annuum) is a mild pepper, about 4-5” inches in length. The name means little raisin. Pasillas can be harvested green and immature to make sauces and salsas. They can also be harvested mature and dried. It’s in this form that they are used, along with ancho and guajillo chiles, to make the classic Mexican mole sauce. As chilies go, pasillas are not particularly hot. They have a Scoville rating of 1,000 to 2,500, which means they are equal to less hot than a mild jalapeno. As they mature and become darker in color, they also get hotter. They mostly have a rich, pleasant, almost berry-like flavor.
