Pepper, Jalapeño Early (Capsicum annuum) - 25 Seeds
•American grown seeds
•Easy to Grow
Lots of bold flavor in a small, 3" pepper, Early Jalapeño is better adapted to cooler climates than other jalapeños. Incredibly versatile, they're hot enough to add a little kick to your favorite dish, but mild enough for any meal. Enjoy green or allow to ripen to red for a sweeter, bolder flavor. Jalapeños rate 2,500–5,000 Scoville heat units (medium hot).
They can be sown outdoors in early summer when the soil remains above 65 degrees F, but indoor germination is recommended. Indoors, start 6-8 weeks before planting date. Sow seeds into flat at a rate of 4 seeds/inch and then pot up into 2” or larger cells/pots after the first set of true leaves appear. For growing transplants, maintain temperature at around 75°F during the day and 65°F at night. Harden off plants by slightly reducing temperature to 60-65°F and reducing water for 2-3 days before transplanting. Peppers prefer light, well drained, moderately fertile soil with pH 6.5-6.8. Use a high phosphorus starter fertilizer when transplanting to give young peppers a good start. Keep nitrogen levels in moderation, as high amounts can reduce yields.
