Early Jalapeno will give you a compact plant with compact chillies: good yields of stocky shaped warm fruits over several months. These are faster to mature than most other varieties, ready to pick 10 weeks or so after transplanting when dark green. these chillies have been rated between 2,500 and 5,000 on the Scoville Heat Scale. Price for 10 seeds
SOW: from mid-April to end of May, indoors in a warm soil in trays or modules barely covering the seeds as they need light to germinate.
GROW: when they reach the 2/3 leaf stage they can be planted into a greenhouse or hardened off and put outside in a warm sheltered spot. You can grow them in the soil, in a container or in a grow bag. Early Jalapeno is usually harvested when they are dark green; the heat intensifies as they mature.
EAT: can be used fresh (will keep up to 3 weeks in a fridge) or dried, or ground into powder. Chillies freeze well.
