80 days. Mild-sweet-hot, fruit is dark green, turning brown as it ripens. This pepper is used in Mexican "mole" sauces; tasty.

What are the pros? Taste

What are the cons? None

Review:

If you pick this pepper green you're missing the ball game completely. The rich complex flavor only comes out when they're dark chocolate colored. It gives a rich raisiny grassy taste that's really sweet. It sounds weird but it's the most amazing tasting pepper I've ever tried in my life heatwise it's lower than jalapeno. I eat these fresh while in the garden. Most amazing taste! One thing I noticed is I take a long time to go from green to chocolate, so be patient.

What are the pros? Tasty, good grower & producer

What are the cons? Just takes time to mature

Review:

This is a very tasty pepper that grows well, is a strong plant 3’ , bushy and full of peppers. I use it fresh, or dried love the flavor, & is a repeater. I test at least every few years but more often if I’ve made changes. I shoot for a ph of 6.5-6.8. I keep them well fed in vegetative stage with a fairly balanced or a higher nitrogen feed. Once the plants are in the ground & approaching time to flower, I use a mix w/ a bit lower nitrogen & higher phosphorous & potassium. I try to stay away from urea based nitrogen - it takes longer to work as it needs good soil activity to become available, but with quicker acting nitrate nitrogen, you want to make sure to follow directions so you don’t burn your plants. If tests indicate a need to raise ph, I use dolomite-limestone the prior fall & it will provide critical calcium and magnesium. If ph is fine, I use a calcium/magnesium supplement & Epsom salts around the plant or as foliar spray. Know your soil - fall testing is important.

What are the pros? Flavor!

What are the cons? Low germination, slow maturing

Review:

I absolutely LOVE the flavor of these peppers! I use them many ways, but my favorite is in cream of pasilla soup. Although they have been difficult to start, once they get going, they are usually good producers. In spite of the low germination rate and slow maturation of the plants, they will always have a place in my garden!

What are the pros? taste and amount of peppers

What are the cons? none

Review:

This is one of the few peppers that can take Phoenix 118 degree summer dry heat. The other that did extremely well is the CGN 21500 pepper. The Pasilla has an awesome very rich fruity taste. It has a very nice light-grassy sweet taste with earthiness to it also which you can easily detect fresh. It is the perfect matches of flavor raw right off the plant. The heat is under jalapeno so you can REALLY eat fresh if you have some small tolerance to chilis. The plant produces a ton of peppers, but needs a longer season to ripen them. They will stay green for a while on the plant, but ripen to the deepest chocolate color. My peppers grow from 6-8 inches long. They ripen from their lighter green to a darker green first before moving to their chocolate color. Plants are around 2.5 feet tall after a complete season. I haven't dried them yet, because this pepper tastes soooooo great fresh, but read that favor becomes more complex when dried to flakes or powder. I started seeds in November.

What are the pros? Production was great, flavor

What are the cons? Germination trouble

Review:

Had some trouble germinating seeds. Seeds that did germinate were vigorous and turned out to be get plants. These produce strong productive plants full of wonderful peppers for drying/smoking.
