Early Jalapeño Hot Pepper (Heirloom 66 Days)

Latin American Heirloom. A very hot pepper with excellent keeping qualities, although Jalapeños 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  


Caspsicum annuum

Germination: 10-14 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 75-85ºF. Cooler soil temperatures slow germination time.

Seed Sowing Depth: ¼” deep

Starting Indoors:  8-10 weeks before the last frost. Sow in flats/cells/pots. Provide 75-85ºF soil temperatures. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water-soluble fertilizer (diluted to ¼ of suggested measurement). Transplant seedlings 18-24” apart after the last frost.

Sowing Outdoors: Not recommended, especially in northern areas

How much does a packet plant: 20-25 foot single row  

Harvest: Use a sharp instrument to cut the peppers from the plant. Pick the first fruits when they reach usable size, this helps accelerate the growth of the other peppers on the plant. Leave some peppers on the plant to mature so they can change color and sweeten up.

Tips: Pinch off early flowers or tiny fruit on any seedlings before placing them in the ground. Plant in fertile soil, amend with compost if needed. 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.

Amazing seeds!

I have been a loyal Pinetree shopper for years. The seeds are always quick to germinate and the variety can't be beat!

Just planted 10 jalapeño pepper seeds today. They are on a heat mat and under grow light. Will let you know how they germinate. All my other plants are doing good. Just transplanted petunias in larger containers.

Very trustworthy folks

I ordered several different types of seeds for this year's planting. After starting all the seeds and anxiously awaiting their arrival I was pleasantly surprised that I had 100% germination. That's a first for me. Pinetree will now be my go-to seed supplier for my non-gmo, heirloom and organic seeds.

Early Jalapeño Seed Purchase

Seeds germinated a lot quick that the typical Chile pepper seed...less than a full week. If the peppers grow as quick as the seedling has I am definitely looking forward to purchasing more. Typical Pinetree Garden Seeds, they never cease to amaze me and I love their products and service!

Great Plant

Turned out great. Produced good sized jalepenos that I got several harvests from. See video of the garden and plants at the beginning of this video: https://youtu.be/BtxSDWvErHM
