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 2-3" 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!

Nice seed company!

I found a strain of pepper I had been looking for not available at several other larger seed companies, and Pepper Joe's delivered. PLUS, they send a small package of two other seed varieties, as a bonus gift and two cool hot pepper stickers as well! I will go with these guys again! Well done, Pepper Joe.
