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 pepperThese 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.
