A very popular thick-walled, medium heat chilli used widely in Mexican cooking. Great for salsas, nachos, tacos, burritos and pizzas. Usually harvested when green but can be left to mature and turn red. A must for your veggie patch and, once ripped, for your BBQ.
The chilli pods go from green to red over time. When fully grown the Jalapeno Chilli can grow up to 70 – 90 cm high and you should be able to get a lot of fresh fruit during the chilli season which lasts approximate 4 to 6 months.
How to Grow
In seed trays or in fertile well-drained garden soil or pots. 5mm deep, cover with fine soil and keep moist. Pick regularly to encourage further fruit growth. Harvest: As required, 12-14 weeks from sowing.
