Small Yellow Cherry Hot Pepper Seeds are a fantastic habanero variety with the same fruity flavor and fiery heat - but in a cherry-sized version! While the heat levels for these peppers aren't exactly "off the charts," they still clock in between 100,000-350,000 SHUs, so you know these little pods are hot!

Watch as they grow to around 1-2" long, but the plant itself can reach heights of up to 5 ft. tall and produce plenty of these spicy yellow peppers. Fruits will still have the same habanero appearance - wrinkly skin, lantern shape, maturing from green to a bright yellow, and a mixture of fruity and floral aromas. These habanero plants are also considered to be ornamental and add nice color to your garden or patio.

Small Yellow Cherry peppers are frequently infused into many hot sauce and salsa recipes for their delicious fruity and tropical flavors. They can also be dried and turned into a tangy chili powder that adds an intense amount of heat to your cooking. Or, if you enjoy the spicy side of life, try taking a bite out of these fresh pods and savor the citrusy flavors paired with intense heat.

Low Germination, too early to review...

I'm excited about some new peppers to try but out of the packet ordered I only have 3 seeds that have germinated. I am a careful knowledgable and skilled pepper grower and I usually see a much better success rate. I'll have a better review to write as the summer progresses.

Thank you for your review on the Small Yellow Cherry Hot Pepper Seeds! We are so sorry to hear about the poor germination rate you experienced with this seed variety. A customer service representative will be reaching out to you directly to investigate this issue further and provide resolution. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to work with you on this!

  • 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.
