Gourmet Jalapeno Pepper Seeds

A very popular and versatile Mexican chilli which is eaten both green and red. It is named after the city of Xalapa, the capital of the province of Veracruz.

The compact plants are easily managed and produce a good crop over a long season. The chillies can be harvested green or red, and when ripe can remain on the plant for several weeks without deteriorating.

The thick walled fruits are moderately hot, and are often stuffed with cream cheese before being cooked. Being crisp and juicy, they also make good salsa and are particularly good chargrilled as a side dish to cold meats or curries. In Mexico ripe jalapeños are hot smoked for several days to produce chipotles, an important ingredient in Mexican cuisine.

Different strains of Jalapeño vary in growth habit and in the pungency of the chillies. Our selection is particularly compact, highly productive, and the chillies have a better flavour and a bit more pungency than the majority of strains and hybrids generally available. Capsicum annuum.
