Pepper - Jalapeno Early
Capsicum annuum Tender Annual
Jalapeno Early is similar to Jalapeno, but is earlier and better adapted to cool conditions. Dark-green, thick-walled, 3" cone-shaped fruits ripen to red. These peppers are hottest when fully ripe (4,000 to 6,000 Scoville to units), but can be eaten at their green stage. A perfect pepper for Mexican dishes and pickling.
Did You Know? To tame the burn, eat peanut butter, milk, ice cream or yogurt. The heat-producing capsacin binds to the fat in them and is swallowed harmlessly.
Soil and Water: Peppers require deeply-worked, well-drained soil with plenty of added organic matter and a pH of 6.0-6.8. Water deeply, but don't over wter.
Planting and Growing: Start seeds indoors 8 weeks before the last frost. Direct seeding is not recommended. Stake to keep fruit off the ground and mulch for disease and weed control. Jalapeno peppers germinate slowly, must have warm, moist conditions.
Harvesting and Storage: Harvest the first fruits early to encourage continued production through the season. Cut (don't pull) the fruit from the stems.
