Purple Jalapeno Chilli Seeds

Purple Jalapeno turns dark purple and stays that way for a long time before finally ripening to an oxblood red. The Fruits are about the same size as regular jalapeno, with the same thick walls and fiery heat. Great for use in salsas and very attractive pickled with a mixture of other jalapeno colours.

Fresh Jalapenos are usually consumed in salsas, thinly sliced for nachos or pizza toppings, or pickled to preserve. 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, 3 to 4 feet 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.
