Pepper - Jalapeño Early - Capsicum annuum
Tender Annual Jalapeño Early is similar to Jalapeño, but is earlier and better adapted to cool conditions. Dark-green, thick-walled, 3" cone-shaped fruits ripen to red. These peppers are hottest when fully ripe (4,000 to 6,000 Scoville units), but can be eaten at their green stage. A perfect pepper for Mexican dishes and pickling.
Did You Know? To tame the burn, eat peanut butter, milk, ice cream or yogurt. The heat-producing capsaicin binds to the fat in them and is swallowed harmlessly.
