Don’t get the Cascabella pepper confused with the Cascabel pepper! Yellow Cascabella peppers are a thick-walled small “Hungarian Hot Wax” pepper type that is bursting with flavor.

The Cascabella pepper plant will grow to 18 to 24 inches tall with gorgeous dark emerald green leaves on a sturdy bush. Cascabella peppers have a conical shape tapering to a point and the hot wax-type pod will grow to 2 inches long. These peppers are low-medium heat chiles when allowed to ripen to their final color, red. The color shift during the ripening stage goes from yellow to orange, and finally a bright red.

The difference between the Cascabella and Cascabel peppers is the Cascabella pepper can be eaten fresh, while the Cascabel pepper is typically dried. The heat is similar to a Jalapeño but with a flavor similar to a Sport pepper. These peppers taste great on salads, salsas, and appetizers. Our favorite is eating them straight from the jar! Usually, Cascabella peppers are pickled in the yellow stage with a dash of turmeric.

Can’t wait for the peppers!

Took a little longer than other pepper types to sprout, but all were a success! Very glad they were available! Last year I had missed out.
I do notice that pest bug types seem to be attracted to them. Any good suggestions?

  • 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.
