Pepper Jalapeno Early is popular for Tex-Mex dishes and for pickling. The dark green fruits grow to a length of 3 inches and can be left on the bush to mature to a fiery red color with medium heat. The compact and sturdy growth make it a perfect choice for containers.

Days to Maturity: 75
Best Time for Transplanting: Late Spring to Early Summer
