Organic Early Jalapeno Hot Pepper
80 days to red harvest | Capsicum annuum
These are the earliest jalapenos we’ve found, as well as the most prolific in our short seasons. Readily ripening red, we love pickling jalapenos as well as turning them into hot sauce. We also smoke the red fruit to make our own chilpotles! Since Early Jalapeno is so compact, she also thrives in containers.
