'Holy Molé' is a memorable name and the plant will provide a memorable harvest of peppers. It is the first hybrid pasilla-type pepper, which is used to make the famous molé sauce. 'Holy Molé' is resistant to two common viruses that stunt plants and reduce pepper production: Potato virus Y and Tobacco Mosaic Virus Strains 0, 1 and 2. Because of this resistance, it produces more peppers giving you a higher yield. If peppers are left on the plant, they will mature to a dark chocolate color. The pepper flavor is nutty and tangy. Mature plants are 3 feet (1 m) tall; a perfect size for patio containers. 'Holy Molé' is easily grown in a sunny location and thrives on summer heat.


It's often hard to list definite sources. Ask for them at:
  • Online vegetable and flower seed websites
  • Mail order seed catalogs
  • Seed packets in retail stores
  • Or as bedding plants at garden centers
