When fresh, this pepper is called 'chilaca;' it is also known as 'chile negro.' 8 to 10 inch long cylindrical peppers are thin walled, and dark green ripening to dark brown. They have less than 250 Scoville units and are mainly used dried for their rich, smoky flavoring in sauces. Plants are tobacco mosaic virus resistant.

I successfully grew this large plant in 2011. It produced well with good tasty fruit. Will grow again in 2012.

September 2, 2013 - these plants are growing like crazy. They are great dried and powdered. Very tasty.

From your friends at Botanical Interests: The Pasilla Bajio offers a rich, smoky, mildly hot flavor to many dishes. It is also called “chilaca” and “chile negro”. The name, “Pasilla” means “little raisin” in Spanish, referring to the dark brown, wrinkled dried pod. It is called “chilaca” when fresh and adds character to red chile enchilada sauce and salsas. When used as a dried pod or in powder form, it is a very flavorful ingredient in many mole sauces.

Bought seeds of Pasilla Bajiou in spring 2003. This plant has lots of 4-6 inch long peppers, a little hotter than a jalapeno and smokier flavor. Good for Chili and hot salsa. Plants get tall so need staking.
