Capsicum annuum (80-90 days) Yelp, you heard right a sweet and mild Jalapeno!
Great for those that love the flavor of Jalapeno, but not all the heat. Peppers are thick-walled and are about 2" long and about 1/2" wide at the shoulder. They start off green and turn red when they are ready for harvest. Plant grows about 24" tall and bears heavy.
Planted them a week or so ago and they’re sprouting from their soil blocks. It will be a while before they get to the garden. Can’t wait!
This is the first time I've tried growing peppers from seeds instead of just getting growing plants, but no places anywhere in this area carry the mild or sweet pepper seeds. Since they are for home made salsa, I thought I'd see if they'll do good in our hot and humid summers. I planted 16 seeds in four long containers and so far have only 4 sprouts showing thru the top and potting soil. I don't know if getting them out in early June was too late, but I'm going with them as long as they are alive. I may change the soil mix to see if that helps. The seeds were a fair price, I'm just hoping for some kind of reasonable return.
order was wrong when it arrived. The problem was quickly fixed!!!
