These small traditional jalapeno peppers are about 3" long and 1" wide on good-sized plants. Its smooth, thick, shiny green flesh ripens to a brilliant red. Perfect for growing in large containers. (2000 - 5000 Scoville units)
Sow jalapeno seeds indoors about six weeks before the last expected frost. For most locations, this will be between January and March. Replant your seedlings in larger pots after they have at least 2 sets of true leaves or are at least 2 inches tall. In two more weeks move outdoors to a bright, well-drained but moist location. Prepare your Jalapenos for the outdoors before they actually go outside safely, by letting a small fan blow on them or taking them outdoors in a protected location for a few hours a day. You haven't tasted a proper jalapeno until you've grown it yourself.
