Known as Bola in its raw state, and Cascabel in its dry state, this mild chilli is most commonly consumed when dried and powdered when it takes on a woody, nutty and smoky flavour.

The Bola chilli is the Cascabel chilli in it's fresh state. Cascabel literally translates to ‘rattle’ in Spanish, and is named after the sound the seeds make inside the pod once dried. It is a relative of the Catarina chilli.

Whilst this chilli can be eaten fresh and dry, it is most commonly used in its dry state, when it takes on a woody, nutty and smoky flavour, adding a great depth of flavour to many dishes.

The pods mature to a red, but once dry appear an almost brown colour. It is relatively mild, measuring in at 1500-4000 Scoville Heat Units.
