Extremely pungent plants reach up to 1 metre under cover. High yielding.
Grow on at 16-23°C. The seeds require good ventilation so do not further cover the seeds in bags/propagators unless absolutely necessary.
Only water when the soil around the roots is dry as overwatering can produce a smaller crop of more sour tasting fruits. A ph level in the growing media that is slightly acidic is useful.
On the Scoville scale hotness scale, jalapeños fall in medium-hot range 2,500-4,000 “Scoville heat units” (SHU). In comparison, sweet bell peppers have 0 units, and Mexican habañeros have 200,000 to 500,000 units.
