    Chilli Jalapeno - Bishy Barnabees Cottage Garden

    Product Details

    Description

    One of the worlds most famous chillies, Jalapeño is a popular and easy plant to grow, producing heavy harvests of crisp, green fruit. Generally harvested when green, the fruit will ripen to red if left. Plants reach a height of around 80cm and fruits continuously from late summer onwards or 80 days from sowing.

    Plant Care Tips

    Sow a few seeds into a tray in late January to May and cover lightly with seed compost.  Either use a heated propagator or pop the seed tray into an enclosed plastic bag and seal and place on a windowsill.  Once the seedling has produced two true leaves (second set of leaves) they can be transplanted into individual pots.  Try and maintain around 20-25 degrees while young plants.

    As the plant grows, transplant into as large a pot as allows, this will determine the size of the plant.  Once the plant has flowered and has started to produce small chillies, it will benefit from a feed of either comfrey tea or tomato feed.  Chillies dislike irregular watering as this will sometimes cause blossom end rot (the base of the chilli/pepper rots)
