Most familiar in their green stage, jalapeños are hottest and fully ripe when they turn red. The stocky 2 foot tall plants will not fall over or break branches even with a heavy load of fruit. The short, 2-3 inch peppers are thick-walled and juicy. Use fresh, pickled, or in sauces. Early Jalapeño will set fruit under cooler conditions than other jalapeño varieties. Selection from Territorial Seed. 66 days.
Care: Plant 18-24″ apart in rows 24-30″ apart in full sun. Keep soil uniformly moist (but not waterlogged) for best production.
