This is a giant version of the Jalapeno pepper (different from the Giant Jalapeno). The Jalafuego hybrid is noticeably more robust in its size and its flavor than other Jalapeno varieties, which make them a must have for growers and chefs.

Plant these pepper seeds into the ground and watch them grow into 3 ft. tall, sturdy Jalafuego plants. You will see 4-6” long fruits form, starting out a deep green and ripening to a mature red. Jalafuego peppers are extra wide with smooth and glossy skin. These plants are more productive than other Jalapeno varieties, so be prepared for heavy yields.

What you’ll get is more heat and flavor with these peppers. Jalafuegos can be harvested at their green stage (70 days) or when they ripen to red (90 days). Green Jalafuego peppers will have less heat and a lighter flavor best used in fresh foods and for cooking. Red Jalafuegos have more of a bite and peppery flavor to them, making them ideal for drying, salsa, and sauce.

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
