Jalapeno or Jalapeño is one of the best-known chilli peppers and used worldwide. Originates from Mexico. The original Jalapeno is named after the Mexican town of Xalapa (also spelled Jalapa).
Jalapeno Hercules is a new Jalapeno variety and is hotter than the normal jalapeno. They have a deep burn, a light jalapeno flavour and are very sweet.
The plant grows to about 80 cm tall in a pot and would grow bigger, if you plant it in the ground. The pods are about 6 to 7 cm long and 3 cm wide, have a conical shape and start off dark green and end turning red when ripe. We like them ripen, because they taste better and are hotter.
