Jalapeno Early Heirloom Pepper
Maturity Date: 75 days
The Early Jalapeno grows dark green, 3-inch pods with rounded tips that are medium hot and thick walled. It is a quick growing hot pepper that will give you loads of peppers. Great for short growing season areas and in raised beds! The Early Jalapeno pepper is a Non-GMO, Heirloom variety that's been the standard jalapeno for many many years. It will turn darker and get a little hotter on you, but will also give you true flavor. The Early Jalapeno pepper does great in northern climates. If you start indoors about 4 to 7 weeks before setting outside, you can harvest these in just about any zone. This gives our northern friends a chance at fresh peppers. We are in zone 6; we get cooler nights from the middle to the end of summer and this is our go-to pepper.
Also, this Heirloom garden seed favorite does great in hoop houses. It's not uncommon to still be harvesting well into October in a hoop house. For our die hard gardeners, you can make this a container plant and take it indoors. It produces well in poor soil. It's an all-around winner, and our ounce packs have about 3100 seeds.
