Pasilla Oaxaca-(Capsicum annuum)-The Pasilla Oaxaca pepper is related to the other Pasilla types in the State of Oaxaca, Mexico. This variant often is being named Pasilla Mixe which it is not. It is grown in the foothills of Oaxaca like the Mixe but is not the same chile. The Pasilla Oaxaca which I obtained from my friend Janie in New Jersey has a thicker flesh than the Mixe and a sweeter flavor. It ripens from very dark green to brown. The peppers are about 6 inches long and 2 inches in width near the stem. They are used for stuffing and roasting but also smoked dried and used in traditional sauces like mole. The Pasilla Oaxaca chile plants grow over 3 feet tall.
