Details

A large, strong plant, Jalafuego produces loads of extra-long jalapeños and is the highest-yielding jalapeño we have grown. This is the perfect pepper for super-sized poppers, big bowls of salsa, and jalapeño cornbread. The peppers resist cracking, and get hotter the longer they stay on the plant. They are also resistant to bacterial leaf spot and potato virus. Originally a hybrid, these seeds were saved from the F1 hybrid grow-out and are considered an unstable F2 variety.

SHU: 4,000-6,000
