Attractive, large, 5″ x 1-1/4″, chili-type fruits are firm and uniform with shiny, smooth skin and thick walls. Ripens to red. Flavor is mildly hot, but not overpowering. Perfect for slicing, roasting and pickling. Peppers have a long shelf life. 65-70 Days. With the ripening comes a kick up in heat (an increase in capsaicin) to the upper end of the jalapeños range (2,500 to 8,000 Scoville heat units). Your normal jalapeño will typically fall somewhere in the middle of that range (with many coming in pretty close to the mild depending on where they are grown and the plant itself). Red jalapeño peppers are more likely to hit the 5,000 to 8,000 SHU range much more often.
Care: Plant 18-24″ apart in rows 24-30″ apart in full sun. Keep soil uniformly moist (but not waterlogged) for best production.
