Jalapeño M Seeds: Famous for a Reason

Jalapeños—is there a chili that needs less of an introduction? Perhaps the most famous chili in the Western world, these mild little fruits are rich in flavour and have become a widespread and versatile ingredient across a range of cuisines.

Though they are delicious fresh, they are most commonly found dried. The plant itself continuously produces fruit over an extended period of time, meaning that you can have continued access to fresh chilies!

How To Grow Jalapeño M Chilies

  • Step 1: Germination

The easiest way to germinate chili seeds is in their final pots. The pot size will determine how long they take to reach maturity and how big the final harvest is. The bigger the pot, the bigger the harvest (and the longer the maturation time).

Bury the seeds in a 1cm-deep hole in the soil, and water. It’s important to keep the soil moist to ensure germination, but you mustn’t soak it. Cover the pot with cling film to maintain a high humidity, but poke a few holes in it to allow for air exchange.

Place the pot in a warm space. Around 25°C is ideal for Jalapeño germination.

Depending on many factors, chili seeds can take between 3 days and a couple of weeks to germinate. So exercise patience and don’t lose hope!

  • Step 2: Patience

Once the seeds germinate and you see the seedlings breach the soil, remove the cling film and make sure they have ample light.

Jalapeños take around 85 days to reach maturity. Water them like any other house plant. A tomato/pepper fertiliser will do to keep them fed and fuelled, but a little extra calcium is the way to go to prevent blossom-end rot. A foliar spray is the best way to do this.

How and When To Harvest Jalapeño Chilies

After around 85 days, you should have mature Jalapeños to pluck. However, this is just an estimate, and the chilies themselves will tell you when they’re ready. They will start green and slowly ripen into red. You can harvest them when they’re green, but wait until they’re an incredibly dark hue. If they come away from the plant easily, they’re ready. If they resist, they are not yet ripe.

While the first fruits mature, the plant should continue to produce new blossoms for the rest of the season. So it’s a great choice for those who want a continuous supply of fresh chilies!

A Word of Warning

Whenever handling chilies and seeds, it’s good to wear gloves to protect yourself from pepper burn. Even though Jalapeños aren’t so hot, it’s still good practice!
