Chilli Early Jalapeno

Chilli Early Jalapeno produces a bulky jalapeno that can handle cooler weather so a candidate to plant outside in Tassie. Grows to height of approx 1m. Water the plant consistently and pick the ends early in the plants life to promote a bushier plant and thus more fruiting points.

Sow Start on a heat mat or indoors in August, plant out after risk of frost and soils warmed (early November in cool climate). Can start earlier if planting in a hot house. Lay black plastic on ground and plant into an X cut-out if planting outside. Providing the maximum warmth and minimising soil temperature drops is important for decent yields in Tasmania.

Spacing 50cm.

Capsicum fruits have been a part of human diets since about 7,500 BC, and are one of the oldest cultivated crops in the Americas, as origins of cultivating chili peppers are traced to east-central Mexico some 6,000 years ago. They were one of the first self-pollinating crops cultivated in Mexico, Central America, and parts of South America.

Germination: Optimal Soil temperature is 24 to 30 C (around 10 to 20 days to germination, longer at lower temps)
