All about Jalapeno

What is jalapeno? This is a delicious green sweet pepper with a slightly earthy and pungent taste. They are often used to spice up dishes and make pickles. The botanical name of jalapeno is ” Capsicum annuum var. “Jalapeno”.

This pepper has many other interesting names, such as Gordo Chili, Huachinango or Quaresmeno, which define the various characteristics of the fruit. Dried red jalapeno peppers can be smoked to produce a warm smoke, which we call chipotle Chili.

Your name comes from your place of origin. In Mexico, there is a large and beautiful city called Xalapa, the capital of the Mexican state of Veracruz. The name of this city is sometimes written as “Xalapa”. And it is in this city that jalapeno will be born. Mexico is already a major producer of jalapeno peppers, and they are widely used in Mexican cuisine. Other regions with intensive agriculture are Texas, New Mexico and California.

Healthy jalapeno peppers can grow up to 2-3 feet (24-36 inches) tall. Each plant can produce up to 25-30 jalapeno pods. As soon as the pods mature, they turn dark green. However, if they stay on the vine longer, the color changes to purple and then to red.

We all know that these peppers give a nice spicy flavor, but how hot are jalapeno peppers? In general, their Scoville heat index is 2500-8000. It gives you a pleasant feeling of warmth, but not as sharp as other related chili peppers, such as Habanero or ghost pepper.

Jalapeno flowers are white and rather inconspicuous, but it is from them that future peppers are born. Its leaves are smooth and dark green in color, some varieties, such as purple jalapeno, have a purple hue on both leaves and stems. Ripe fruits will be 2 to 4 inches long and will initially be dark green or purple. As it ages on the plant, they darken and then gradually turn red before drying out.

The root system of jalapeno pepper plants is relatively extensive and requires at least 8 inches of soil depth and up to 12 inches for larger plants. These roots remain quite thin, like a tomato.

Golden Plantation

Planting and growing jalapeno peppers is quite simple. Here is a brief description of when, where and how to plant these peppers.

When to plant

When it comes to planting jalapeno peppers from seeds, most people start from the inside. The ideal time is usually 6 weeks before the end of the frost. In most of the United States, this happens between January and March. The seedling heating mat can stimulate germination when you run it indoors.

Pepper plants can be transplanted outside after frosts, usually after April. Remember that chili peppers grow in the sunny and warm climate of Mexico. They need frost-free conditions and warm sunlight. The ideal soil temperature for jalapeno peppers ranges from 65 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

Where to plant

Are you trying to figure out where to plant peppers? Look for places in your garden where you can enjoy the sun’s rays. Peppers love the sun and need it in large quantities for better growth. After you have identified these parts of the yard, look for one that provides protection from strong winds. This prevents your plants from being damaged or finished by the wind.

Growing in pots is one of the variants of jalapeno pepper. You need a container that has enough space for the best development. Try using a pot large enough to grow tomatoes, as your bell peppers have the same distribution and root depth.

Care

Grow jalapenos in your garden? If this is the matter, then here are some important tips for caring for plants that you need to know.

Water And Humidity

The best time to water these pepper plants is in the morning. This allows the foliage to dry out during the day. Avoid accumulating water around the base of your plant, as this can cause problems for your plant. Make sure that the soil easily removes excess moisture!

In warm weather, serve about 1″ of water per week. Most often it is normal to keep the soil evenly moist. You can use a soaking hose or water at the base of your plants.

The ideal humidity for pepper seedlings is from 50% to 70%. A greenhouse or humidifier can help maintain humidity. If you are in a less humid environment, don’t worry, as your plants also tolerate lower humidity. Just make sure you have enough water to drink.

Field

Your soil should be well-drained, loamy and extremely rich in organic matter. The jalapeno plant loves rich and fertile soils!

If possible, aim for a soil pH of 6.0 to 6.8. Although they tolerate slightly acidic or slightly alkaline conditions, neutral conditions are ideal. If in doubt, use a pH measurement kit to determine the average pH of your soil.

Fertilizer

In order for your plants to take root well, make sure that you have a lot of nitrogen immediately after planting. This will stimulate the initial growth of the plant. It is normal to apply slow-release fertilizers before planting seeds.

Add another small dose of balanced fertilizer two to three weeks after germination. When you start to see how flowers are formed, it’s time to plan the flowering and fruiting option, so switch to fertilizers 5-10-10 or 3-5-5. This stimulates flowering and fruiting, not foliage growth.

Apply fertilizers regularly throughout the summer to maintain yields, and then restore as autumn approaches.
