The best pepper for short seasons and cooler climates! Everybody loves Jalapenos, because they can be prepared so many different ways. Jalapeno poppers, jalapeno jelly and pickled jalapenos are just a few examples. Jalapenos have thick skin and just like their cousin the serrano pepper, they do not need to be roasted or peeled before using.
Pods are 3" long and 1" wide on productive 24" plants. Chipotle peppers are red jalapenos that have been smoke-dried for preservation. Capsicum annuum (75 days) Heirloom - Open-pollinated

In early spring, start seeds indoors 8 weeks prior to warm nightly temperatures. Place the seeds in sterile media and cover 1/4” deep. Provide 85°F bottom heat, bright light and keep moist at all times. Seeds will germinate in 7 - 21 days. Transplant seedlings into pots and grow until there are 6 true leaves on the plant. Plant them directly into rich soil, 30” apart or into large 5 gallon containers. Harvest chiles when they are green. If left on the plant a couple more weeks, the peppers will turn red at full maturity.
