Experience the superior flavor and exceptional heat of Spicy Slice Jalapeno peppers from West Coast Seeds. This hybrid variety produces numerous uniform green pods that mature to a sweeter red. With a heat level of 4000-6000 SHUs, these peppers are significantly hotter than the standard Jalapeno M, offering a distinct, pungent flavor throughout the flesh, not just in the seeds and pith. The 65-day maturation period ensures a bountiful harvest of deliciously piquant peppers.

Key Features:

  • Exceptional Heat: 4000-6000 SHUs, hotter than Jalapeno M.
  • Superior Flavor: Distinct jalapeno taste throughout the flesh.
  • Hybrid Variety: Consistent and uniform pods.
  • Matures in 65 Days: Quick and productive harvest.

Growing Instructions:

  • Difficulty: Moderately difficult
  • Season: Warm season
  • Exposure: Full sun
  • Timing: Start indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date. Grow under bright lights and transplant outdoors only when night temperatures are consistently above 12°C (55°F). Seeds should sprout in 10-21 days with soil temperature at 25-29°C (78-85°F).

Starting:

Sow seeds 5mm-1cm (¼-½") deep in warm soil. Use seedling heating mats to speed germination. Maintain daytime temperatures at 18-24°C (64-75°F) and nighttime temperatures at 16-18°C (61-64°F). Transplant seedlings into 8cm (3") pots before they become root-bound. For optimal flower set, keep at 12°C (55°F) for 4 weeks, then transplant into 15cm (6") pots and move to a warm room at night.

Growing Conditions:

Ensure soil is rich in phosphorus and calcium by adding lime and compost at least three weeks before transplanting. Mix ½ cup of balanced organic fertilizer beneath each plant. Keep soil moist but well-drained. Harden off seedlings before planting out 30-60cm (12-24") apart. Five-gallon containers with good drainage work well. Use plastic mulch and a cloche to increase temperature. Pinch back growing tips to promote leaf production, shading fruits from sun-scald.

Harvesting:

Harvest when fruit is firm and reaches the desired size. Sweetness increases as the fruit ripens. Picking young/green peppers encourages more fruit production. For late-season peppers, pull out the entire bush before the first frost and hang it upside down in a warm, dry place to ripen.

Seed Info:

In optimal conditions, at least 65% of seeds will germinate. Usual seed life is 2 years.

Diseases & Pests:

Prevent rot and wilt by planting in well-drained soils and rotating crops every 4 years. Use paper collars at the base to prevent cutworms. To prevent Tobacco Mosaic Virus, wash hands after handling tobacco. Control aphids to reduce disease spread.

Companion Planting:

Ideal companions include asparagus, basil, carrots, cucumbers, eggplant, endive, oregano, parsley, rosemary, squash, Swiss chard, and tomatoes. Avoid planting near beans, Brassicas, or fennel.

Grow your own Spicy Slice Jalapeno peppers with West Coast Seeds and enjoy their exceptional heat and flavor in a variety of dishes. Perfect for gardeners seeking a reliable and productive jalapeno variety
