Days to Maturity:m65 DAYS GREEN, 85 DAYS RED

Prolific yields of flavorful blunt fruits with distinctive jalapeno flavor.

Small, moderately spicy fruits with thick walls are traditionally harvested dark green but can be allowed to ripen to red. A classic eaten fresh or pickled with Mexican dishes! Compact plants are sturdy and work well in containers.

SHU 5,000

3-3.5" fruits

Soil Nutrients and Requirements: Peppers prefer light, well drained, moderately fertile soil with pH 6.5-6.8. Use a high phosphorus starter fertilizer when transplanting to give young peppers a good start. Keep nitrogen levels in moderation, as high amounts can reduce yields.  

Seeding Depth: 1/4"

Plant Spacing: 12-18"

Row Spacing: 18-36" or double rows 18" apart on 5-6" centers.

When to Sow: Start transplants 6-8 weeks before planting date. Sow seeds into flat ~4 seeds/inch and then pot up into 2" or larger cells after the first set of true leaves appear. Optimal soil temperature for germination is 85°F. For growing transplants, maintain temperature at around 75°F during the day and 65°F at night. Harden off plants by slightly reducing temperature to 60-65°F and reducing water for 2-3 days before transplanting.

Harvest first peppers promptly to stimulate further fruit production. Peppers can be harvested and eaten at either unripe (green) or ripe (colored) stage. Colored peppers generally require 2 - 4 weeks longer
