Jalapeños are thick-walled and juicy dark green fruits that are 8cm (3") long. Jalapeños that are allowed to ripen to red and then smoked are known chipotle.
Peppers need additional time to mature before they will bloom and set fruit. Start indoors mid-March to early April under bright lights and transplant when nighttime temperatures remain above 12°C. Be patient as these seeds should germinate in 10-21 days if soils can be kept between 25-29°C.
Plant grows up to 60-90cm (24-36")
Space plants 30-60cm apart
Matures in 70 days (from transplant)
2,000-5,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHUs)
