The Black Jalapeno pepper is a really cool Jalapeno pepper variety bred to be almost totally black. With a unique color and the 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 jalapeños

I order black jalapeño seeds from pepper joe every year. They look really cool. The peppers are milder than regular jalapeños. Pepper joes seeds are great. I wish pepper joe would run for president.
