STARTING SEEDLINGS

In early spring, start indoors about 2 months before night temperatures stay reliably above 50-55F (10-13C). Sow seeds 1/4 in. deep and 1 in. apart in a container of seed starting mix. Keep moist but not soggy and very warm 80-85F (27-30C). Provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to plant outside. When seedlings are 2 in. tall, transplant into deeper individual containers. Maintain at 70-75F (21-24C). Feed with half strength fertilizer every week until weather is warm enough to gradually acclimate seedlings to outdoor conditions. Transplant 2 ft. apart into rich soil in full sun.

GROWING NOTES

Jalapenos need warm conditions. Don't transplant outdoors until night temperatures stay securely above 55F (13C). Prepare soil well with aged manure or compost. Plant only robust seedlings with well-developed roots. Mulch plants to maintain even soil moisture. Keep well weeded, watered and fertilized.

HARVEST AND USE

To harvest, cut rather than pull fruit from the plants when deep glossy green or fully coloured to red. Enjoy Jalapenos fresh or roast and remove skins. Use freely in all kinds of fresh salsas, sauces, fajitas and marinades. Jalapenos are great pickled or stuffed with cheese for chile "poppers".
