Developed by Paul Bosland of New Mexico State University in 1997, this multi-colored Jalapeno variety is the envy of everyone’s garden! The NuMex Pinata pepper plants produce some of the most gorgeous-looking pods that will captivate any gardener!

These pepper plants grow well in most climates and can reach heights up to 3 ft. tall. With similar sizes and shapes to regular Jalapenos, these NuMex Pinata peppers mature from their budding green color to a sprightly yellow, to a vibrant orange, and finally to its bright red. Growers can pick NuMex Pinata peppers off the plant at any stage. Or, if you prefer, enjoy the changing colors from the comfort of your garden or patio!

Enjoy the distinct Jalapeno heat and flavors with NuMex Pinata peppers. The heat is noticeably hotter than most Jalapenos which hits you right away and makes for a nice kick to any food dish, fresh salsa, or homemade sauce. These peppers also make for a delicious homemade pepper powder to add to your cooking.

Excited to try them; disappointed in the results

I planted these in the small, peat pods you can buy at Walmart and Target. I monitored them daily and kept them damp yet not flooded. My results…nothing came up. This is not my first rodeo and I start seeds every year. Not sure I will buy from Pepper Joes next year.
