Pennington Jalapeno M Hot Pepper

Jalapenos are rich in vitamins A and C and potassium. They also contain carotene - an antioxidant that may help fight damage to your cells as well as folate, vitamin K, and B vitamins. Many of the health benefits come from a compound called capsaicin. That's what makes them spicy. Jalapenos are simple and fun to grow and nothing tastes more delicious than picking it fresh from your own garden. Choose a perfect sunny location with a well-draining soil. You can even plant them in containers on your deck, porch or patio. Provide water over the soil at the base of your plant when the top 2" of the soil is dry. Watch as the fruits appear on your plants and harvest when mature at around 3" and enjoy!
