Purple Jalapeno turns dark purple and stays that way for a long time before finally ripening to an oxblood red. The Fruits are about the same size as regular jalapeno, with the same thick walls and fiery heat. Great for use in salsas and very attractive pickled with a mixture of other jalapeno colours.


Fresh Jalapenos are usually consumed in salsas, thinly sliced for nachos or pizza toppings, or pickled to preserve. When ripe, they are often smoked and dried and are then called Chipotle and used to flavour sauces, soups and stews. The plants are upright, 3 to 4 feet tall with woody stems. The fruits take about 75 days from sowing to harvest with each plant producing 20 to 30 fruits which are typically 6 to 8cm long and 2 to 3cm wide and conical. The plants usually need some support as they start to fruit to avoid branches being broken by the weight of fruit. Heat level: 6000-8000 scoville units. Average contents: 20 seeds.

looking forward to these Jalapeño coming to fruition, i have planted them along with Carolina reaper in a heated tray and they are starting to germinate and poke up through

Germinated easily

7 out of 8 sprouted very quickly at 25 deg under a humidity dome, and I didn't really give the last one enough time in there before taking it out so might have been fine too.
