The Black Jalapeno pepper is a really cool Jalapeno pepper variety bred to be almost totally black. With a unique color and same sweet-and-spicy taste that jalapenos have, you'll definitely want to grow and eat this pepper!

Black Jalapeno pepper plants are very easy to grow and produce many peppers that you'll never have to worry about running out! Ideal for container gardening, these Black Jalapenos grow between 3-4" long and change colors from green to black, then finally to red at maturity. The peppers are prone to getting a black "blush" on their shoulder where their sides face the sun. 

Show this beauty off to your neighbors and gardening buddies. Black Jalapenos are known to be sweeter and juicier than other jalapeno varieties, making them perfect for pepper sauce, salsas, and for fresh foods. Their heat is slightly hotter, with peppers reaching heat levels up to 10,000 SHUs. Add some sweet spiciness to your food with the Black Jalapeno pepper!

Black Jalapenos

So the black jalapenos and seven pot yellows and Jay's peach scorpions all came up five in a row. I have bad knees and I'm still waiting for my kids to plant these. So as far as germination. I think every seed germinated. I only had a scare with the Jay's Peach. They popped up 5 days later in the Jiffy Pot germination thing from Home Depot. I live in Florida now, and planting in the fall compared to Pittsburgh PA planting in the early spring. We're still getting used to this. We have two strawberry seasons here compared to one in Pennsylvania. It's weird and a lot to get used to and how to take care of our plants

Easy to germinate and prolific

Growing in KC. Started seeds in late January and put into containers around May 1. I have 2 foot tall plants with 25+ peppers. I'm confident that I'll harvest 200+ before frost. Beautiful ornamental purple flowers to boot. Great seeds and plants. I'd attach a pic but the review won't allow.

I really enjoyed growing, and eating, this pepper! The plant alone is beautiful; tall and slender with purple flowers. It bears abundant fruit as well. I will grow these again next year!

I ordered a variety of pepper seeds from pepper joe, and first off I must say that the customer service was exceptional; fast and haslte free with a little something extra in the package. Nearly all of my seeds germinated, and produced healthy plants. I only had trouble with germinating chocolate butlah seeds that seemed to be in rough shape when i got them, however a few were still viable and manged to grow healthy plants. One thing I noticed that interested me, and in which i do not wish to sound denoting to the pepperjoe products is that with this black jalapeño variety the leaves of the plant are partially purple; they were all grown with my other peppers in the same media under the same con
