Too Successful?
I have 4-5 plants in a 3' row, planted in late-April/early-May this year and took my first peppers the last week of August. Now in October, I have taken over 20 peppers and have another dozen close to picking with yet another dozen in earlier stages of growth, plus half a dozen or more flowers yet to fruit. Great spice as expected from jalapenos. I have been picking earlier than I want to keep the plants producing, but even this "early" picking still yields about 1" diameter peppers. This would be a great variety if you like to share, want to can, or just really like eating jalapenos. I plan to sow for the same number of plants next year since we have friends and family to take the extra peppers that we don't use.
