Hot Pepper 'Jalapeno M' 

Jalapeno M Pepper Seeds produce pungent, thick-walled, and juicy dark green peppers that are 8cm long and about 2cm wide with a blunt end. Plants grow up to 60-90cm tall. If there are still green peppers on the plant at the end of the season, pull up the whole plant and hang it in a dry spot for it to finish ripening to red. Use green peppers for fresh eating, pickling, and sauces, and dry the red ones. 2,000 - 5,000 SHU's. Can be grown in containers or directly inside the ground. Dried, smoked jalapenos are known as chipotle.
