Jalapenos are noted for their zesty, hot flavor widely used in Mexican cuisine. The blunt-ended, thick-walled fruits grow about 3” long and have a deep green color maturing to red. These are excellent for pickling, and for adding zest to many dishes. These can also be dried for decorations.
It is recommended to plant your hot peppers close together, but you can also plant these peppers with other vegetables to allow some shelter from the sun to keep them from drying out. You can plant your peppers with tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplant, escarole, okra, swiss chard and squash. Some companion herbs are basil, oregano, parsley and rosemary. Keep your hot peppers away from beans, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and fennel.
