Red and Yellow Jalapenos

Posted by jrslick KS (My Page) on

I am looking for a variety of Jalapenos that turn red quickly. I always have people want red jalapenos and it takes so long for them to turn red. For me, the earliest I can get red Jalapenos is early to mid August. I usually start picking Jalapenos in early July.

Any varieties?

Also, has anyone grown yellow jalapenos? The variety I planted was Jalaro. I won grand champion vegetable at our county fair with them. The plants did not get very big, but they were loaded with peppers. From the bottom to the top! I had cages around them for support. They have great flavor and heat, for a jalapeno. I have never run across anyone who has grown them before.

Thanks,

Jay

By far the best Jalapeno for the north is the Early Jalapeno. It turns red early. They are hot. A little smaller so they are able to turn red faster. They also have a heavy production on small plants. You can get the seeds at low cost from Fedco. 4000 seeds for about $5.50. a regular package is only 60 cents. they come from Jalapa in Mexico so they are real Mexican hot jalapeno.

Try them you will like them.
