Days to Maturity: 66 from transplant
We love this level of spice! Early Jalapeños ring in around 6000-10,000 Scoville Units depending on growing conditions. These short-season jalapeños are perfect for our Colorado growing season. They will start to turn red when they are fully mature, but most people enjoy the flavor of fully green fruits best. Little fiery beauties, they give a very spicy kick to salsas, hot sauce, pickled veggies, chile flakes and your favorite dishes. Stocky plants are chock full of fruits. Their petite size (about a foot in diameter) makes them ideal for container gardening, raised beds or backyard gardening. Fruits average 2.5" in length. We grow an entire row of them and make fermented hot sauce to last the year.
Planting Instructions: Start Early Jalapeño seeds indoors under lights 3-6 weeks before last spring frost. Transplant after all danger of frost has passed, spaced 2' apart. Keep soil slightly moist but do not overwater.
Seed Saving Instructions: Use gloves to avoid burning skin! Remove seeds from the tastiest, fully mature fruit. Or use a blender with a very low setting-- place fruits with plenty of water and slowly blend. Strain out seeds. Dry seeds on a screen or cloth. Store seeds in a paper or mesh bag in a cool, dark and dry location.
