If you love ethnic and spicy foods, you must grow jalapenos in your garden! The 3" peppers are typically harvested when still green, but you may want to let some of them fully ripen to red for a sweeter attractive treat. Jalapenos are often used in salsas or as a condiment to spice up a variety of dishes. Chipotle peppers are simply jalapeno peppers that have been smoked. The Jalapeno is named after the city of Jalapa in Mexico where it was once grown commercially. The plants grow to 24"-36" tall and can even be used as an informal, edible, annual hedge. This packet plants: 45 plants started indoors (one 60-foot row).
