Jalapeño Purple Pepper Seeds
These tasty jalapeños grow on a beautiful ornamental plant that can have all three pepper colors at the same time. They have a nice medium heat and a little more sweetness than regular jalapeños. Their thick walls have a crisp bite that is great in salads and sandwiches. Excellent for stuffing with cheese for appetizers and for pickling.
The nearly black 3” long peppers have a bright sweet flavor with just enough heat. Peppers begin deep green and change to dark purple and finally mature to red. The sturdy 24” tall plants have showy lavender flowers.

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 7-14 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 purple. If left on the plant a couple more weeks, the chiles will turn red at full maturity.
All of our seeds are GMO-free.
