The ever-popular pepper for spicing things up! Jalapeno Early hot pepper plants produce an excellent yield that's ready much earlier than other varieties. Pick them when green for a milder flavor, or when red for full heat (ranked medium-hot). Great in containers and sunny flower beds too. 65-80 days.
Plant Information
Rated at 2,500-5,000 units on the Scoville heat scale (considered medium-hot), Jalapeno peppers get their name from the Mexican city of Xalapa and are a go-to for adding some kick to countless recipes when you want to spice things up. The plants are very easy to grow but take some time to mature, so start your seeds indoors up to two months before you expect the last frost in your area. Jalapenos can also be grown in containers. The plants will reach about 2 feet in height and will remain strong and sturdy despite the weight of their yield. When mature, the peppers will be 2-3 inches long and can be picked while young and green for a milder flavor, or when ripe and red for full hotness. You can also control the heat of your peppers by removing the seeds, since they're the most fiery part. The flesh itself still has some zing, but using it seedless will be a much tamer experience than utilizing the whole pepper. To avoid injuring your plants during picking, carefully cut or snap the peppers off along with a short piece of the stalk.
