If you love the taste of Jalapenos but can’t take the heat, the Tam Jalapeno is the one for you! With a heat level of 1,000-1,500 SHUs, this is milder than the typical Jalapeno which averages around 3,000-5,000 SHUs. The Tam Jalapeno was developed by Texas A&M where it’s designed to have the Jalapeno flavor without the heat, so you can enjoy it and not worry about it burning your tongue. The Tam Jalapeno pepper plant will grow to 2-3 feet tall and will produce 3” long green peppers with shiny and smooth skin. It will ripen when it turns to a dark green color but will turn red if left on the plant for too long.
These are delicious to add to salads and are good for pickling, cooking, preserving, and seasoning. It can also be stuffed with a variety of fillings, cooked with stir-fry and chilis, made for jellies, or to use as a taco/pizza topping! You will not be disappointed growing these pepper plants because they are productive, disease-resistant, and grow high yields of peppers! The plants are sensitive to cold, so make sure they receive full sun.
