Cascabel (or rattle) chilies get their name from the sound they make when shaken; the seeds become loose and rattle around within the fruit body.
The parent chile bola matures to a dark red color. When dried to achieve its cascabel namesake, the chili darkens further. Cascabel chilies are used when near-black in color.
