The Jalapeño is one of the earliest peppers that was cultivated and grown for its flavor and heat. This thick-walled, 3 inch cone-shaped fruit ripens to a beautiful red and is hottest when fully ripe. Compact, non-brittle bushes grow to 24 inches tall and are an early producer. The name Jalapeño is Spanish for "from Xalapa", the capital city of Veracruz, Mexico.

Start seed indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost. A heat mat helps to speed up the germination process. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 65-85 degrees. Peppers generally have long growing seasons and grow slowly during cool temperatures. Delay transplanting until your soil has thoroughly warmed up in the spring. A week before transplanting time, harden off plants by exposing them to an increasing number of hours outdoors each day. Peppers are less cold tolerant than tomatoes.
