Hot Jalapeno Early Pepper Seeds (Organic)

Hot Jalapeno Early Pepper Seeds (Organic)

Spice Up Sooner

The Hot Jalapeno Early Pepper, a variant of Capsicum annuum, is distinguished by its early ripening characteristic. Developed for rapid maturation, this cultivar enables earlier harvesting compared to traditional jalapeño varieties. Originating from a selective breeding process, it maintains the classic jalapeño heat while offering an expedited growth cycle.

This plant typically reaches a height of 2-3 feet, presenting a bushy and compact form ideal for various garden sizes, including container gardening. It features glossy, dark green leaves, and during the growing season, produces small, white flowers. These develop into the characteristic jalapeño peppers, starting green and turning red upon full maturity.

The Hot Jalapeno Early's peppers deliver a moderate to high heat level, with a crisp texture and a pleasantly spicy flavor, making them versatile for culinary uses, from salsas to grilling.

For optimal growth, the seeds should be sown indoors about 8-10 weeks before the last frost date. Transplanting outdoors is recommended after all frost danger has passed and the soil has sufficiently warmed. These peppers thrive in well-drained, fertile soil and full sun. Regular watering and occasional fertilization support robust growth.

Harvesting can begin when peppers are firm and green, or they can be left on the plant to turn red, enhancing their sweetness. The Hot Jalapeno Early Pepper is an ideal choice for those seeking a quicker harvest without sacrificing the traditional jalapeño flavor and heat.
