Cascabella are small wax-type hot peppers.
They grow up to 1 ¾ inches (4.5cm) long by ¾ inches (2 cm) wide, in a cone shape that tapers to a soft point, with relatively thick walls.
The flesh ripens to yellow, then orange, then finally red. They are mostly used when they are yellow.
They have moderate heat in a range from 1,500 to 4,000 Scoville units.
The plant is an open pollinated one, and grows 18 to 24 inches (45 – 60 cm) tall.
The peppers are ready to harvest in 72 to 75 days after planting the seeds.
Not the same as “Cascabel” chiles.
For pickling, canning, sauces, roasting or fresh use.
