Plant Features

Are you looking to add some heat to your garden? Consider growing jalapeno pepper plants! Jalapenos are a popular and versatile variety of hot pepper that can be used fresh or cooked in a variety of dishes.

Jalapeno plants produce 3-inch peppers with a mild heat that are perfect for various culinary uses such as stuffing, pickling, grilling, or eating fresh. These plants have high yields and produce fruits throughout the growing season, ripening from green to red. The most popular jalapeno variety is Jalapeno M, which is relatively tame with a Scoville scale rating of 2,500 to 8,000. This makes it a great choice for people who don't usually like overly spicy things, but still want to enjoy the texture and warmth that jalapeno hot peppers can bring to food.

When growing jalapeno pepper plants, it's important to choose a sunny location with well-draining soil. Jalapenos prefer warm temperatures and consistent moisture, so be sure to water regularly and fertilize throughout the growing season with a balanced fertilizer or organic matter.

When it's time to harvest, wait until the jalapeno peppers are firm and fully colored (usually green or red, depending on the variety). Wear gloves to protect your skin from the capsaicin in the peppers, which can cause burning sensations.

Our Jalapeno M Hot Pepper Plants are grown with a commitment to natural methods, ensuring they're healthy and robust. Guaranteed to arrive alive and thriving!

Jalapeno M Hot Pepper Plant

I can't thank you all enough for the quality of plants you ship to customers! I once again am quickly planting Jalapeno in my garden. It is soon to have open flowers and is thriving well! Shipping and packaging the best online!

From Stephanie a | July 04, 2022

Perfect for poppers

I like this jalapeno plant because it's not too spicy, but it has enough of a kick to still come through when making jalapeno poppers. The plants themselves arrived healthy and well packed.

Pepper plants

Arrived fresh and strong, ready to plant. Looking forward to an excellent pepper harvest this year.

From Jamison | May 18, 2019

Hot Jalapeno

I got Three plants all which where in great condition I am a big fan of hot stuff for food myself. The plants where in there own boxes so you don't have to worry about crowding of roots or that type of problem with them. I wouldn't think you should have any problem with planting them at all. So if you want Jalapenos and have some sun and the space for them go for it.

From Justin | May 04, 2019

Jalapeno M Hot Pepper

I'm so pleased with the personal service I've received from GrowJoy! My first order was a large one and my plants arrived quickly and we're carefully packaged. One of my plants did not survive shipment and when I notified them my replacement plant was sent timely. I will be ordering all of my plants and gardening supplies from GrowJoy from now on.

From Josie | July 13, 2017

From Judith | March 31, 2014

hot pepper order

Jalapeno M plants arrived in good condition.

From Debbie | March 27, 2014

Clear some space!

Clear space in your garden or in your patio container because you will need it! You will NOT be getting a tiny 2 inch twig peeking up from a plastic bag - this jalapeno pepper plant will arrive standing a good 10 to 12 inches, full of leaves, and if you're lucky like me - a few pretty white blooms! I'm one week out from putting mine in the my raised garden beg and already have a jalapeno the size of a pinky nail starting to grow. So excited! I love GrowJoy, the plants they ship are absolutely the best! Great size and substance!

From Stephanie | June 13, 2013

Unusually robust pepper plants

I received three Jalapeno hot pepper plants from GrowJoy last week, and I am very pleased with them. They arrived promptly and well-packed in generous containers. The root systems were very well developed, and the plants themselves unusually robust and large (about 18" high). Each of them was already blossoming, and this kind of early start is essential in this cold climate. By contrast I received similar plants, late, yesterday from another vendor. They were in tiny pots, maybe a tenth the size of the GrowJoy pots, and the plants themselves were stunted (about 4" high). I would send them back, but that wouldn't be worth the postage. Anyway, I think my three plants from GrowJoy will give me more than even peppers to dry in the fall and then use for the ensuing 12 months.

From Peter | June 13, 2013

Jalepeno M plant

The plants came in excellent condition. They were much bigger than I expected which was a pleasant surprise. I would use GrowJoy again without hesitation.

From Laura | June 13, 2013

Very good quality
