•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).

Growing Instructions:
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.
