Also known as guajones, coras chile bola, and rattle chile, these Cascabel chili peppers look as delicious as they taste!

Cascabel pepper plants grow around 3 ft. tall and produce high yields. These tiny peppers grow to about an inch to an inch and a half and have a unique flavor profile. Cascabel means “little bell” or “rattle” in Spanish, which means the seeds inside rattle when you shake the pod. They ripen from green to red, and when you dry them, they darken into various colors: brown, red, orange, and even metallic copper.

The Cascabel chili's flavor profile is earthy, woodsy, nutty, acidic, and slightly smoky with tobacco and nutty undertones. These peppers are commonly used for soups, tacos, stews, salsas, and marinades. Try using dried Cascabel chiles for that extra flavor, or to make Cascabel chili powder!

Cascabel pepper scam

Pepper Joes was quick to process order and deliver seeds ordered. The problem is that the Cascabel seeds ordered are not as advertised. They are not Cascabel peppers at all, but rather Cascabella peppers. I was so hoping I had found a source of the authentic Cascabel, but not so. Very dissatisfied customer!

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
