Cascabel Chile Pepper

25 Seeds

$ 3.79

A popular variety for drying, Cascabel is a small, mildly spicy pepper averaging 1 to 2 inches in diameter.  The smooth-skinned peppers hold their shape during the drying process creating round bells or rattles when dry.  In fact, the literal translation of the word Cascabel is "bell" or "rattle".  Sturdy 24 to 30-inch plants produce amazing yields of round peppers that are initially green, turning red and finally mahogany when fully mature.  Peppers are traditionally dried but may be eaten fresh.  Mild to medium heat level.

Sorry to say...

I had 5 of the se ds germinate...they are under my back porch and out of the intense sun we've had.. now it's raining (finally) and I'm still hoping they'll become plants I can potand at least bring in the house in winter as I have learned that about peppers. Otherwise they're not over 3" high. .... Perhaps if they don't succeed at all I can try again next year. I appreciate you asking...thanks Make it a Great day...to your health be blessed....Y

Thanks for your review, Yvonne. Sorry you are not having great luck with these. One tip I could offer is to try putting a heat mat under them when they are germinating. Daytime midsummer temps are probably warm enough, but the nighttime temps can be a bit chilly for a pepper seed, no pun intended. They prefer their soil to be around 85-95 degrees. Pepper seeds also like their soil a bit drier-- a plastic dome can help keep the soil moisture exactly where it needs to be. Anyway, if you would like to try again next year, please reach out for a free replacement packet. And you can find more info about starting pepper seeds here:

Great seeds and company

I planted 6 Cascabel seeds about 4 weeks ago, and 4 germinated. That’s a a success in my book! They’re already 2-3” tall, and I can’t wait to transplant them outside in a couple weeks (zone 5a) and see how they produce! I feel like I received a fair amount of seeds in the packet, shipping was prompt, and the price was very fair. I hope to enjoy growing cascabels for years to come so I can dehydrate them and add them to my salsa recipes! It’s already become a favorite of my neighbors!
