Chilli Seeds - Chilaca

James Wong Grow For Flavour Range.

James says - ‘Dried and smoked, it takes on a sweet, berry-like flavour with hints of chocolate’.

  • The dark brown, almost black flesh of this Mexican type is sometimes used fresh to spike enchiladas, chilli sauce and stews
  • Essential for an authentic Mexican mole sauce.
  • Harvest July-October.

When it is dried and smoked it really comes into its own. It then becomes known as a pasilla, meaning ‘little raisin’, because of its sweet, berry-like flavour with distinct hints of chocolate. Essential for an authentic Mexican mole sauce. Rating 500-2,000 SHU (Rating measured in Scoville heat units - SHU. The higher the rating the hotter the chilli.)

Using a good quality, moist seed compost, sow in a propagator and cover with 6mm (¼") compost. Place on a windowsill approximately 21-24ºC (70-75ºF) to germinate, usually 5-7 days. Transfer seedlings into 7.5cm (3") pots and grow on. Performs well in a pot on a patio or most productive when grown in a greenhouse. Plant out in a sunny, sheltered position 50cm (20") apart after risk of frost has passed. Support your plants and feed regularly with a proprietary fertiliser. Sowing to Cropping: 22 weeks

Ideal for patio pots and containers, greenhouse. Prefers full sun but grows well in sun or shade. HEALTH BENEFITS: Both red and green peppers are high in vitamin C, with red very high in vitamin A too. CULINARY TIPS: Delicious for salads or cooking.
