Like its name may suggest, this jalapeno type of pepper has an excellent flavour and medium heat content. Strong sturdy plants with dark green narrow 8-10cm fruits that are best harvested when they are still green in colour before turning red.
Suitable for container gardening or if growing in the vegetable patch, dig a hole that will generously accommodate the plant's root ball, and mix compost or well-rotted farmyard manure and a handful of low-nitrogen, organic fertilizer into the planting hole. 2000shu
Advice - Pot on your plug plants into individual pots filled with a good quality multi-purpose compost and keep them warm and protected from cold and frost. Harden off gradually before planting out into their growing site in late May or early June (when risk of frost and cold nights have passed in your area).
