Cascabella peppers have a conical shape tapering to a point and the hot wax-type pod will grow to 2 inches long. These peppers are low-medium heat chiles when allowed to ripen to their final color, red. The color shift during the ripening stage goes from yellow to orange, and finally a bright red.


The Cascabella pepper heat ranges from 1,500 to 6,000 Scoville Units on the Scoville Scale. This makes the hottest cascabella roughly equivalent to an average jalapeno pepper in heat.
