Product Description

HOT PEPPERS: When Wilbur Scoville first devised a means to test the heat of peppers, his hottest entry then came in at 20,000 units. Habanero and Thai chilies can go as high as 60,000. Compare that to the sweet bell pepper at zero. When hot peppers are consumed, capsaicinoids bind with pain receptors in the mouth and throat that are responsible for sensing heat. Once activated by the capsaicinoids, these receptors send a message to the brain that the person has consumed something hot. The brain responds to the burning sensation by raising the heart rate, increasing perspiration and release of endorphins. Hot peppers should be eaten with caution! Jalapeno Pepper Capsicum annuum 24-30 in plant, 2 1/2 in x 1 in fruit / Tender Annual / Early maturing jalapeno has classic shape and substantial heat units in slightly smaller fruits. Great for short season locations / Days to Maturity: 55-70 / Full Sun / Moderate Water The starter plant you will receive is growing in a 4 pot.
