To grow Early Jalapeno hot peppers, follow these steps:

  1. Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date. Sow seeds 1/4 inch deep in moist seed starting mix. Place seeds in a warm, sunny location and keep moist. Seeds should germinate in 7-14 days.
  2. Once seedlings have two sets of true leaves, transplant them into individual pots. Harden off seedlings gradually before transplanting them outdoors.
  3. Choose a sunny spot with well-drained soil. Amend the soil with compost or manure before transplanting. Space plants 12-18 inches apart. Water plants deeply at transplanting.
  4. Water plants regularly, especially during hot weather. Fertilize plants every 2-3 weeks with a balanced fertilizer. Mulch around plants to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.
  5. Harvest peppers when they are ripe, which is usually 65-85 days after transplanting. Early Jalapeno peppers are ripe when they are green or red. Ripe peppers will be more flavorful and have a higher heat level.

Tips for growing Early Jalapeno hot peppers:

  • Early Jalapeno peppers need full sun to produce the best yields.
  • Early Jalapeno peppers prefer warm weather. They will not tolerate temperatures below 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Early Jalapeno peppers need well-drained soil. If your soil is heavy clay, you can improve drainage by adding sand or compost.
  • Early Jalapeno peppers are heavy feeders. Fertilize them every 2-3 weeks with a balanced fertilizer.
  • Early Jalapeno peppers are susceptible to blossom end rot. This is a calcium deficiency that can be caused by irregular watering or by a lack of calcium in the soil. To prevent blossom end rot, water your plants regularly and fertilize them with a fertilizer that contains calcium.
