Cascabella Pepper Seeds
Cascabella peppers are typically eaten fresh in the yellow stage and are often pickled. Because they are so easy to grow, and productive many home gardeners pickle these whole or sliced in rings. If you enjoy jalapeños, you will love these little yellow chiles.
Expect heavy yields of tart and crisp 2” long conical-shaped peppers. The thick wax-type skin matures from creamy-yellow to orange, and then red when fully mature. Sturdy plants grow 18-24” tall with dark green leaves.
Capsicum annuum (80 days)
Heat Level: Medium Scoville 1,500 - 3,000
~ Packet contains 10 seeds.
In early spring, start seeds indoors 8 weeks prior to warm nightly temperatures. Place the seeds in sterile media and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, bright light, and keep moist at all times. Seeds will germinate in 7 - 14 days. Transplant seedlings into pots and grow until there are 6 true leaves on the plant. Plant them directly into rich soil, 30” apart or into large 5-gallon containers. Harvest chiles when they are yellowish-orange.
All of our seeds are GMO-free.
