Guajillo Chile Peppers are very common to Mexican cooking, and are the workhorse of chiles with a lot of dazzle. The guajillo, ancho, and pasilla are referred to as the "Holy Trinity of Chiles". They are all used together to make authentic Mexican mole sauces. Pods grow to 4-6" long with thin flesh and shiny reddish brown color. They have a very distinctive sweet heat flavor. Plants are very productive and grow well in dry climates. Capsicum annuum (75 days) Heat Level: Medium Scoville 3000 - 5000 ~ Packet contains 10 seeds. In early spring, start seeds indoors 8 weeks prior to warm nightly temperatures. Place the seeds in sterile media and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, bright light and keep moist at all times. Seeds will germinate in 7 - 21 days. Transplant seedlings into pots and grow until there are 6 true leaves on the plant. Plant them directly into rich soil, 30” apart or into large 5 gallon containers. Harvest peppers when they are red.

Poblano - Fresh green poblanos make some of the best rellenos because of their mild heat and heart-like shape. Anchos are the dried form of this pepper, and are used in making many sauces like mole. This heirloom is easy to grow. Chiles are 4" long and 2-1/2" wide and ripen from dark green to rust red. Plants are 30" tall and yield a continuous harvest all season long.

Pasilla is the dried form of the Chilaca chile and means little raisin in Spanish. This refers to its appearance with dark brown wrinkled skin. Use this pepper fresh for enchilada sauce or salsas. Use it dried and powdered in Mexican mole sauces. This heirloom is easy to grow. Narrow 8-10" peppers are mildly hot with a sweet flavor when fresh, and a rich smoky flavor when dried. Tall 30" plants produce dark green chiles that turn dark brown when mature. Capsicum annuum (85 days) Heat Level: Mild Scoville 1000 - 2000 ~ Packet contains 10 seeds.
