Hot pepper Jalapeno grows up to 1 metre tall. High yield, the fruit matures from green to red. Mostly picked when green. Used in Mexican sauces. Excellent variety for pickling. Can be used fresh or can be dried and stored for longer, just like any other chilli pepper. Sow chilli pepper seeds about 1 cm deep into a seed tray or in small pots or cells. Cover lightly, water and place inside at between 20-25 Celsius. To aid germination, place the tray in a plastic bag. Sow January-March. Germination can be slow with some hot peppers. As soon as seedlings are large enough to handle, prick out. Transplant the seedlings into small individual pots. Use rich compost and keep the plants between 20-30 Celsius during the growing season. For best production keep the plants in the greenhouse. Regular feeding is recommended.
