A high yielding jalapeño chilli that produces large fruit on medium-sized plants.
Heat level: medium
(approx. 24,000 SHU)
The medium-sized plants of this jalapeño are very productive, especially for a open pollinated (non-hybrid) variety. Its fruit measure about 2.5 x 8cm and turn from green to red as they mature. They are quite hot for a jalpeño chilli, and have a more tapered shape and a slightly less sausage shape than typical jalapeño fruit.
Indispensable in both Mexican and Southwest American cuisine, jalapeños are as versatile as they are well known, and are equally at home when pickled, added to salsas, baked into corn bread, or sliced into rings for pizza toppings. Though the fruit are traditionally eaten green – when they have a herbaceous, green pepper flavour – they are equally as good when red ripe.
Heat level: medium (approx. 24,000 SHU)
