Additional information

Pack contains: 15 seeds

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.

Variety Info

  • Heat Level: 2,500 - 10,000 Scoville Units (Warm)
  • Species: Capsicuum Annuum
  • Origin: Mexico 
  • Pod Description: Generally bought and used in its green, immature state, it will ripen to a dark red.  The pods are often bullet-shaped with a rounded end

Sowing Info

  • Sow a few seeds into a tray in late February 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)
