There are a lot of different types of Jalapeños!
Our purple jalapenos are new this year, and we're excited to grow them in our gardens going forward. This type of jalapeno begins deep green and changes to dark purple and finally matures to red. You can pick them anytime, but they do get more heat and flavor as they mature from purple to red. These jalapeno plants are beautiful, they can have all three pepper colors at the same time. These have a nice medium heat and a little more sweetness than regular jalapeños, and the their thick walls have a crisp bite that is great in salads and sandwiches.
