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.
