Vegetable Pepper 'Jalapeno'

Hot Jalapeno Pepper

Looking to kick it up a notch? By adding some Jalapeños to your favorite dish, you can add a great deal of flavor and sometimes heat. This pepper averages 2-4” long, is green when ripe, and turns red the longer you keep it on the vine. Red Jalapeños tend to be sweeter and not quite as hot.  If your Jalapeño is too hot for your liking, you can simply remove the veins and seeds. A Jalapeño plant stands 2 ½-3’ tall and typically produces 23-30 pods. During the growing period, a plant will be picked multiple times. You should space your Jalapeño plants 14-16” apart with about 2-3’ between rows. They are ready to be picked when they are firm, have smooth skin and are bright green. Jalapeños are an excellent source of Vitamin C and Vitamin A.
