Jalapeno M Hot Pepper
Sausage-shaped, blunt-ended peppers have thick walls, they are 3 1/2 long and 1 1/2" thick that ripen from a dark green to a brick red, with the flavor deepening as it turns color. Plants are upright, dark green with good leaf cover and grow 26 - 36" tall. Fruits are pendant.
An improved historical pepper that is ubiquitous in Mexico and the American Southwest. It has a medium heat with a great flavor either green or red. Named for Xalapa in the state of Veracruz, Mexico it is used green for pickling, stuffing, roasting and salsas.
Once fully ripened to a gorgeous brick red color, it is mesquite-smoked to become chipotle. Also strung on ristras for easy access or dried and crushed for a hot chile powder. Extremely productive over a long season.
Indigenous to Central and South America, peppers were developed into a crop plant around 3,000 BC or perhaps even earlier. Columbus introduced Capsicum into Europe and it also spread to Africa and Asia.
Peppers are used fresh, dried, and cooked. Peppers contain vitamins A and C.
