Capsicum annuum. "Chilaca" is the fresh chile, dark green, thin-walled, sweet and medium hot. It is called "pasilla" when dried, possibly because of its brown raisin color when ripe. This chile from Mexico requires a long growing season. Plants can grow over 4 feet tall, with chiles 7" long. Dried pods are used in moles, adobados and other sauces. From our Seed-Bank Collection.
