I am a hot pepper nut. I love the plants and the wonderful recipes I come up with to use the all. I grow a fairly large variety of peppers, from sweet to scorching hot. The jalapano pepper is one of the most versatile peppers around and easy to find in any grocery store, however, nothing beats them right from your own garden. I get bushels of them each year and make sauces, salsas and use them in a bunch of recipes.

Plant produces high yields of Jalapeno hot peppers. Peppers are dark green, medium-hot, thick-walled peppers 2-3″ long, 1″ wide, with rounded tips. Peppers turn from green to red when mature. Best when harvested when green.

Rated at 2,500 to 8,000 Scoville Units in heat intensity. They are spicy with just the right amount of heat! For comparison, a pimento pepper is 100 Scoville Units and a habanero pepper is 350,000 to 580,000 Scoville Units. Each packet contains 25+ seeds.

Pepper should be started indoor approximately 8 weeks prior to the last frost of the spring.

Sow ΒΌ” deep in a well-drained starting medium. Seeds require lots of warm to germinate; medium should be between 80-85 degrees F. Using a heat mat, available at home and garden store and elsewhere, can help to ensure ideal conditions. Additionally, young starts will fare much better with additional light. Place in a window or sunny location that receives lots of southern or southwestern sun exposure. Consider supplementing with artificial lighting if possible.

Set plants out 2 to 3 weeks after average last frost when the soil has warmed and the weather has settled. Peppers can be temperamental when it comes to setting fruit if temperatures are too hot or too cool. Nighttime temperatures below 60 F or above 75 F can reduce fruit set.
