Jalapeno-medium-sized hot pepper, which is valued for the feeling when eating it from "warm" to "hot". Pepper fruits on average have a length of 7 to 10 cm and are collected mainly in technical ripeness-green. The birthplace of Jalapeno pepper is Mexico. The name comes from the city of Xalapa, Veracruz, where this pepper is traditionally grown. The vegetation period is 70-80 days. In height, the plant reaches 1 m. Collect fruits as they grow, but at the very beginning of maturation. In biological ripeness, the fruit becomes bright red, but reddened fruits are considered to be of lower quality than green. In Mexico, the homeland of the variety, they are either buried in the ground, or dried or smoked. Red fruits are used for cooking the national dish - chipotle. On the Scoville scale, which shows the sharpness of peppers, Jalapeno has a fairly wide rating - from 2500 to 8000 points and is medium-sharp. Compared to other hot peppers, or as they are also called - chili peppers, the sharpness varies from medium to high and depends mainly on the growing conditions. The more light and sun, the sharper the pepper. It is also observed that the main sharpness is contained in the tissues that hold the seeds in the pod. Their removal reduces the sharpness of the pepper.
Germination of seeds is not less than 80%, but for faster and more friendly germination, the seeds must be pre-soaked. The seed germination period is at least 15 days at a temperature of 20-23 degrees.
