The Yatzy pepper, or the Yatsufusa pepper, is the #1 top-producing C. annum hot pepper that you'll find anywhere! Originating from Japan, this variety is EXTREMELY prolific! You won't find much behind the leaves, because chiles are covering the entire plant!

Plant these seeds in your garden and watch them sprout into compact 2 ft. tall pepper plants. You'll notice these peppers growing in upright clusters of 5-6, growing around 3" tall and ripening from green to their shiny bright red color. These are early maturing and continuous producers - the more pepper pods you pick, the more replacement peppers will appear on this wonderful plant!

Yatzy peppers have fruity and spicy flavors similar to Cayennes and some Thai peppers. And with heat levels soaring as high as 75,000 SHUs, this is a pretty hot pepper to use in your fresh and cooked meals! This is very popular in Japanese cuisine, and is also great to use dried as a spicy chili powder!

Excellent quality!

I planned 6 varieties of peppers from different seed suppliers and my Yatzy seeds from Pepper Joe's address beating all the rest. Its not even close, I have 90% germination rate. Plus they sent me a bonus pepper variety add those seeds are coming up quickly, as well. Highly recommended!

  • 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.
