Jalapeno or Jalapeño is one of the best-known chilli peppers and used worldwide. Originally it comes from Mexico. The Jalapeno Goliath is a new variety we are growing this season. The plant grows to about 70 cm tall in a pot and would grow bigger, if you plant it in the ground. The original Jalapeno is named after the Mexican town of Xalapa (also spelled Jalapa). The pods are about 7 to 10 cm long, have a conical shape and range from a medium to dark green in colour, turning red when ripe. We like them ripen, because they taste better and are hotter.
Excellent for Jalapeno Poppers
Flavour wise: Sweet with an apple-like flavour. Really delicious.
Heat level: These have a deep burn and are hotter than the usual Jalapeno
