When you first think of Jalapenos, you tend to think of the classic green jalapeno that we all have come to grow and love. But did you know you can also grow the purple jalapeno? Why not bring a pop of purple in your garden with the Purple Jalapeno Pepper? It is a beautiful hybrid pepper that often shows all three colors on the same plant. As the plant continues to grow, the pepper will start out green, to deep purple (almost black at times), and then turning into a rich red hue. Along with this, these delicious purple peppers bring an enjoyable slight burn with a bit more sweetness than your average green jalapeno. You can use this jalapeno the same way you would use the typical jalapeno, such as salads, sandwiches, stuffed peppers, and more!
WARNING: Plants adjust to small, gradual changes in their environment better than sudden shifts, which is what the hardening off process is all about. Just as you get burned when you bare your untanned skin to the sun, leaves of plants started indoors will develop pale, sunburned patches if they are suddenly exposed to too much sun. The story has a happier ending when you introduce seedlings to bright light and sheltered breezes gradually, over a period of one to three weeks.
