Pasilla Bajio is a mildly hot pepper that has a rich, smoky flavor when dried and a sweet fruity flavor when fresh. The pods are 8-14″ long and slender with thin walls. When fresh and dark green (Chilaca) use them in enchilada sauce and salsa. When fully ripened to dark brown and dried they are an essential ingredient in mole sauce. TMV resistant. 78 days.
4,000 seeds/oz.; 21-26 days, 72°F.
Start early indoors and transplant well after last frost. Grow seedlings at 62°F night temperature and 70°F day temperature. Lower temperatures permanently reduce plant productivity.
Scovilles are a measure of heat.
