Details

The Guajillo Pepper is a high yielding Mexican pepper that is perfect for salsas, moles, and drying. Guajillo means "little gourd" for the rattling sound the seeds make in dried pods. This pepper variety produces high yields of 3″ to 6” long by 1″ wide peppers that turn from green to an orange-red-brown color when mature. The flavor starts as sweet, fruity tones finished with a sharp, savory heat.  Not recommended for fresh use, as the skins are relatively tough.

SHU: 2,000 - 5,000
