Early Jalapeno Hot Pepper (Heirloom, 66 days)


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



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.
