Orange Jalapeno Pepper


Categories: ,

Why grow regular green jalapenos when you can grow orange ones?

Fruit colour starts green when unripe. Fruits ripen into a candy orange colour, with a very strong heat level. Some sources say its SHU is 8000. But, I’ve found competing information that claims this variety is 80,000 SHU. I think it’s best to grow out yourself and make that decision.

Heat will be lower when green and underripe. The flesh has a nice thickness, with plenty of juice and a great crunch!

Growing Information:

Start seeds indoors at least 8-10 weeks before the final frost date. Please refer to my Seed Starting Calculator for specific planting dates for your area. Use a heat mat to help speed germination if the environment is cold.

Peppers prefer to grow in full sun. Transplant outdoors after all risk of frost has passed, and space your plants at least 1.5 to 2 feet apart.

If you want information on saving pepper seeds, please see my post "How to Save Pepper Seeds".

Shipping Information

Canadian Shipping

Shipping is calculated at the time of order and is based on the number of seed packets per order. All packages are shipped through Canada Post, and pricing for packages containing seeds are the same for addresses across Canada.

Larger items are calculated by weight and destination and will vary by province.

US Shipping

US seed orders are made at the buyer’s own risk, and we cannot guarantee delivery. We will receive and ship orders but cannot account for the actions of foreign customs, which is the reason for this non-guarantee. Unfortunately, I do not offer phytosanitary certificates, so if the seeds are confiscated or destroyed at the border, your order will not be refunded or reissued.

Non-seed orders are calculated by weight and destination and vary by state.

We cannot ship orders outside of North America.
