Pepper Chile Jalapeno Jalafuego Seeds

Pepper Chile Jalapeno Jalafuego Seeds

Capsicum annuum (hybrid)

Item #0269

70 days from transplanting. We looked for a large, quality jalapeño for stuffing and found this great variety. Each pepper can reach a colossal 4"-6" long. Plants produce an abundance of peppers! At the higher end of the heat scale for jalapeños, Jalafuego registers a 4,000 to 6,000 Scoville heat unit rating. Delicious fresh, deep fried, in salsa, and for tasty pepper jelly.

This packet yields approximately 8 plants started indoors.

When to sow outside: 2 to 4 weeks after average last frost when air temperature is at least 70°F and soil temperature is at least 65°F.

When to start inside: RECOMMENDED. 8 to 10 weeks before average last frost. In USDA zones 9 & 10, can also sow in late summer for fall/winter crop.

Harvesting: Harvest when mature size, and firm. Jalapeños can be harvested green or red, and are hottest just when they begin to turn from green to red. When harvesting, take care to avoid touching the interior of any broken peppers, as the capsaicin is an extreme irritant, especially to the eyes. Wash hands thoroughly after harvesting, or wear gloves to harvest peppers.
