Description

Description

Jalepeno has an upright habitat and is a very prolific grower with very pungent fruits. The fruits start dark green changing to a red on maturity, with a Scoville Heat Unit rating of 2,500 to 5,000.

As easy to grow as tomatoes and requiring much of the same treatment. Peppers can be grown outside, so long as they are in a sheltered sunny area, but best results are usually obtained when they are grown in a polytunnel or a glasshouse. Peppers are delicious when used raw in salads but are also very tasty when cooked. They can be stuffed, roasted or added to sauces.

When to sow

February to April

Where to Sow

Sow seed on the surface of a free draining compost in pots or trays and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite and place at a temperature 18-21°C until seeds germinate.

What to do next

Prick out seedlings when large enough to handle into 7cm (3in) pots and grow on underglass. Once plants reach 10cm (4in) high transplant into growbags or 25cm (10in) pots and grow on underglass. Feed once a week with tomato fertiliser once first fruits have set.

Harvest

Late July to October

HANDY TIP

To help support the weight of the crop it is best to tie plants to canes as they grow.
