Jalapeno is a medium-sized hot pepper valued for its spicy sensation when eaten.
Pepper fruits have an average length of 7 to 10 cm and are collected mainly in technical ripeness - green.
Jalapeno pepper is native to Mexico. The name comes from the city of Xalapa, Veracruz, where this pepper is traditionally grown.
Vegetation period is 70-80 days. The plant reaches a height of 100 cm. The fruits are harvested as they grow, but at the very beginning of ripening.
In biological ripeness, the fruits turn bright red, but reddened fruits are considered to be of lower quality than green ones.
In Mexico, the home of the variety, they are either buried in the ground, dried or smoked. Red fruits are used to prepare the national dish - chipotle.
On the Scoville scale, which reflects the spiciness of peppers, Jalapeno has a fairly wide rating: from 2500 to 8000 points.
Compared to other hot peppers, or as they are also called chili peppers, the sharpness varies from medium to high and depends mainly on growing conditions: the more light and sun, the hotter the pepper.
It has also been observed that the main pungency is contained in the tissues that hold the seeds in the pod (removing them allows you to reduce the pungency of the pepper).
