Everyone’s favorite hot pepper, a little sooner than usual
Days to Maturity: 65 from transplant
Where would we be without the Jalape?o atop our nachos and chopped into our Mexican food? Now everyone’s favorite hot pepper is available in certified organic seed form, for a heavy-bearing little plant that will keep you in great eating for months to come.
Just 3 to 4 inches long and about 1? inches wide, these cone-shaped, thick-walled fruits are borne in great numbers on very vigorous plants. They are ready to pick when dark green, delivering a wallop of pure heat.
If you want to keep pesky bugs out of the garden, edge it with Jalape?o plants. The hot fruit is a good deterrent to many destructive pests that want to nibble your vegetable garden to death.
Start seeds indoors or, in climate with short growing seasons, outdoors at least one week after last frost. If starting indoors, allow 7 to 10 weeks for the seeds to mature into seedlings large enough to transplant safely. Fertilize when the blooms appear, and water well. Fruit is most nutritious if allowed to ripen on the plant.
