Botanical Interests Organic Jalapeno Chile Pepper Seeds
If you love ethnic and spicy foods, you must grow jalapenos in your garden! The 3" peppers are typically harvested when still green, but you may want to let some of them fully ripen to red for a sweeter attractive treat. Jalapenos are often used in salsas or as a condiment to spice up a variety of dishes. Chipotle peppers are simply jalapeno peppers that have been smoked. The Jalapeno is named after the city of Jalapa in Mexico where it was once grown commercially. The plants grow to 24"-36" tall and can even be used as an informal, edible, annual hedge. This packet plants: 45 plants started indoors (one 60-foot row).
When to plant outside: Spring, 3-4 weeks after the average last frost date and when soil temperatures are at least 65 degrees or outside temperatures are at least 70 degrees. In USDA zones 9 & 10, they may also be planted in summer for a winter crop.

About Botanical Interests
Curtis and Judy met while waiting to interview for the same horticultural job and soon found they shared a boundless enthusiasm for gardening. Botanical Interests began out of their mutual passion and personal desire for better quality seed and more informational tools to help and inpire gardeners.
"We wanted a level of purity and quality that wasn't easy to find," recalls Curtis. So they searched out the highest quality seed available and began their business in 1997, in the spare bedroom of their Colorado home. The business objectives they established then still hold strong for them now: to inspire and educate gardeners; to provide high quality seed to their customers; and to create an enjoyable work place for employees.
Over the years, Judy and Curtis' family has grown along with their line of seeds which now attracts and pleases customers nationwide.
