Early Jalapeno Hot Pepper (Heirloom, 66 days)

6

Germ 10-14 days
Latin American Heirloom
A very hot pepper with excellent keeping qualities, although Jalapenos are generally used green, they do turn red at full maturity. You should get a very abundant yield of 1” by 3” thick walled fruits, perhaps 30 per plant.
20 seeds

 

PLANTING:

Indoors- Start 8-10 weeks before last frost, 1/4” deep with soil temperatures 70-80 degrees. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Transplant 18” apart when danger of frost has passed and when soil is 65 degrees.

Harvest- Uing a sharp instrument, pick first fruits when they reach usable size, this helps accelerate the growth of the other peppers on the plant. Leave some on to mature, to color and sweeten up.

Tips- Plant in fertile, well composted soil, mulch and provide adequate water. It helps to use row cover early in the season giving the plants extra warmth, especially in the north. Side dress when flowers begin to form.

Easy Jalapeños

I bought these last year. It was my first time really planting a garden so I planted them late, gave them nutrient burn, an dI"m sure other mistakes I don't even know about. However, it still became a well producing pant!!! Mine weren't huge has another reviewer mentioned but they were a good size. I used them in all sorts of hispanic dishes. I had to learn how to make Jalapeño Poppers because it was producing so many. I will be growing it again this year.

Jalapeno for Salsa

I planted the seeds yesterday so I can put the plants out in mid-February, the ideal time to plant jalapenos in Tucson. I wanted to have my own jalapenos for when I make homemade salsa in late spring to summer.

my favorite jalapeno

I've searched for years for the best jalapeño peppers for my home made salsa and hot sauces. This pepper, by far, outperforms all others that I have grown...easy to grow,( they grow HUGH!), and very prolific. Sadly, I pulled them up (November 11) before the frost hits(Calif.) but still picked many dozens of hot peppers first. Awesome pepper!!
