Wash hands thoroughly after harvesting or wear gloves to harvest peppers.

None of my seeds germinated, although they were started in my greenhouse as were all of my other seeds.

A must have jalapeno. I had excellent germination. These were very prolific plants with large, dark green fruits. I can't wait to start more for next season!
