Details

The Dieghito Jalapeno pepper comes to us from Italy. It is reported to be a cross between a Farmers' Market Jalapeno and the Cherry Bomb pepper. The Dieghito Jalapeno chiles ripen from green to red with cracking lines or corking on its exterior skin. The peppers are unique as they have a heart or round shape to them. They are very juicy and their heat ranges from mild to medium. The Dieghito Jalapeno peppers are great for roasting, stuffing, salsa, and pickling. The flavor is that of a Jalapeno but with more sweetness. Non-Isolated.
