Chilli Pasilla Plant
Pasilla is the dried form of the Chilaca Chilli. Named for it's dark, wrinkled skin and pronounced pah-see-yah meaning little raisin. The fruit turns from dark green to dark brown when fully mature and is mild to medium in heat with a strong flavour. The dried chilli is used a lot in sauces.
Is this plant "garden ready"? As with all Chilli plants they love the heat. This is especially true when they are young. All Chilli starter plants should be grown on the windowsill or a greenhouse until they are established and the weather is warm.
What compost should I use? A good quality multipurpose compost is ideal for this. You can use your own compost but make sure you know that it is not too high (or low) in nutrients.
What is a plug plant/starter plant? A plug plant is a small starter plant that is perfect to pot up into a larger plant. We grow and sell so many of these because they allow us to do it for such a good price.
Will I get the plants in the picture? Yes, In the main picture. As this plant is a starter plant it will not be fruiting but will grow to be the same as the picture. The plug (starter) plant picture is used to give you an idea of the size and may not be exactly the same plant.
