Jalapeno Chilli Seeds

The Jalapeño (Capsicum Annuum) is probably the most widely know chilli variety in the world. The chilli gets its name from the town of Jalapa in the Mexican state of Veracruz.

The fruits are conical, thick-walled and typically sold and used green. They usually ripen to red and develop a distinctive ‘corking’ pattern (light coloured marks) as they reach full size.

Fresh Jalapenos are great in salsas, thinly sliced for nachos or pizza toppings, or pickled to preserve them. When ripe, they are often smoked and dried and are then called Chipotle and used to flavour sauces, soups and stews.

The plants are upright,90-120CM tall with woody stems. The fruits take about 75 days from sowing to harvest with each plant producing 20 to 30 fruits which are typically 6 to 8cm long and 2 to 3cm wide and conical. The plants usually need some support as they start to fruit to avoid branches being broken by the weight of fruit.

This variety of Jalapeno produce large fruits which have a heat level of around 6000-8000 Scoville Heat Units.
