We’ve all heard of the classic Jalapeno Pepper, as it is a delicious pepper to add to just about any dish! The Jalapeno plant grows around 2-3 inches tall and produces 2 inches long jalapeno hot peppers. These peppers are easy to grow, and you can expect to taste great flavors of bright, grassy, and bitter. Although they look like a serrano pepper, the jalapeno will taste similar but with only less heat.
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.
