fantastic jalapenos

Bought as a transplant, very healthy plant and has a high yield. Great flavor hit miss with the heat level. now the plant is 5 ft tall x 3 ft wide. little to no maintenance. good size peppers. this plant loves hot weather.

Beautiful Jalapenos

Great germination (80%). Plants have been healthy, produced loads of peppers. The peppers are beautiful (1st place at the fair), large, uniform, perfect for poppers. Good flavor young, then eventually they got spicy! The plant I tried to grow in the hoophouse in a pot never really got spicy, I think because it was watered every day.

Great Jalepenos

We started two of these from seed this year, and both were healthy and prolific. The jalapenos had great flavor and a good level of heat - enough to please the spice-lovers of the family, but not so much as to scare away the more delicate palates. The peppers began ripening early and kept producing through early fall, producing plenty for fresh eating as well as freezing for winter cooking.

Great jalapeños

Every seed I've tried from these peppers has germinated into a plant (both when I first bought the seeds and 2 years later when I planted more this year). The plants are very easy to grow, no pest issues, and very low maintenance.

My husband says they have great jalapeño flavor and we discovered (accidentally) that you can control how hot they are. My husband used to say they had no heat at all, but he had been cleaning the peppers of all seeds and membranes. He accidentally left some membranes inside one time and realized it made them much hotter! So now he just adjusts how hot he wants them by how well the peppers are cleaned out.

Capsicum annuum Our wide array of fabulous peppers, both sweet and hot, offers one of the richest sources of nutrients in the plant kingdom. Hot peppers contain capsaicin, which revs up your metabolism and reduces general inflammation in the body.

Days to maturity are calculated from date of transplanting and reflect edible green fruit.

• Peppers are warm-season annuals that grow best in composted, well-drained soils with a pH of 5.5-6.8
• Extra calcium and phosphorus are needed for highest yields
• Plants perform best when grown in raised beds and covered with plastic mulch
• Row cover young plants, remove after blossoms form
• Peppers grow slowly in cool soils; do not transplant before weather has stabilized
• Peppers set fruit best between 65-85°F

Direct Sowing
