Early Jalapeno Pepper (Capsicum annum) is a very early maturing hot pepper. The compact plants produce a lot of small green peppers that if left on the plant will slowly turn to red as the fruit matures. Jalapenos are used in a wide variety of recipes. They are popular fresh, cooked, pickled, dried and great in salsa. Matures approximately 70 days from transplanting.
For short season climates, start sowing seeds inside in March or April. Harder off young plants, then transplant outside once all danger of frost is gone and the weather has warmed considerably.
