The Jalapeno M Pepper is likely the most used and most well known of the Jalapenos available today. They are easy to grow. Plants are sturdy and can grow to 60-90 cm (24-36″) in height with a spread of 40-45 cm (16-18”) in ideal conditions. Jalapeno M produces a prolific amount of dull white delicate flowers. Peppers start off as dark emerald green and become bright glossy red when they mature. Peppers are thick walled with blunt ends that are 5-8.5 cm (2-3½") long and 2.0 cm (3/4") wide.
Start seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before the last expected frost date in your area. Plant in well-draining soil in a warm, sunny location after the danger of frost has passed. Space plants 30-45cm (12-18”) apart. Peppers prefer slightly acidic soil with a pH of 6.0-6.8. Fertilize with a balanced fertilizer once a month during the growing season. Water regularly, making sure the soil stays moist but not waterlogged. Harvest peppers when they reach full size and have reached their mature color.
