A hot pepper that grows on a sturdy, busy 2' plant. Produces thick walled 2"-3" peppers in profusion. Early Jalapeno is know to set fruits in cooler conditions compared to other jalapenos. Add a zesty, spicy kick to your salsas, burritos or pickling. Nice true jalapeno flavor with a medium heat.
EXCELLENT fire roasted (see pic)
Early Jalapeno Pepper makes a nice pickling pepper.

Did you know that the stem end of the pod has most of the glands that produce the capsaicin. The white flesh surrounding the seeds contains the highest concentration of capsaicin. Removing the inner membranes is thus effective at reducing the heat of a pod. Source...wikipedia.org

I purchased the Fall Seed Collection for some container gardening this autumn and have been very pleased with the results. Germination rate was fantastic and I had to do much more thinning than I usually do from store-bought seeds. The little growing guide helped with varieties I haven't grown before (hello, kohlrabi). All of my plants are hardy and healthy and I'm already enjoying the early harvests. Looking forward to maturity on the longer growers. Will be buying the Granny's kitchen garden pack for spring. Thanks so much!
