This pepper is beautiful and heat is perfect!! I started using rock wool cubes after receiving beautiful seedlings from PJ's last year and my germ rate is up across all varietitees I grew out this year.
My purple Jalapeno seeds came in my first PepperJoe.com order. This has been by far the easiest most relaxed growing pepper plant I've got. The germination rate is always near 100% in peat moss/coco, humidity dome, heating pad and temp at 85 with 100% humidity. These have been very easy to train to grow short and bushy for smaller containers. Great house plant near a window. Also I have a few in the ground that are doing well, and 1 in a Kratky jar doing fantastic.
I LOVE these Purple Jalapenos! Germination for me is at 75% when I use Jiffy starters and 100% when using the paper towel method in my germination hood at 100% humidity.
These plants PRODUCE! I can't wait to let these babies loose outside soon.
Nice flavor and home grown always seems hotter than the store. Beautiful flowers and fruit.
I planted these at the same time as Jaloro (the yellow jalapeño) and some seeds from a giant store bought jalapeño. The germination rate for these was very poor and the ones that did took weeks to finally sprout. All the others rotted. The seedlings are slow growing and don't look all that robust as compared to the Jaloro and giant store bought. I probably would not recommend these.
