Jalapeno
« on: August 04, 2018, 04:45 PM »
Bought a small 'jalapeno' chilli plant from a local garden centre in the spring.

Does this look like a jalapeno?

I was thinking the same, Les. Doesn't seem to have even the shape and colour and glossiness of Jalapeno.

As for the heat; I'm not after superhot stuff, just something I can actually use in food :) But I doubt, as you say, if this one packs any kind of punch at all.

Try green finger chillies Garp, I get mine in Morrisons, plenty hot enough for every day use, I think that T/A's use the same one's, just my 2p's worth :D

Hi Les. Yes I use them too. Will have to source a plant for next year or try growing from seed.

That looks exactly like the Serrano chillies that I buy from my local market.

Funnily enough, I originally wanted Serranos but couldn't get a plant, so maybe it's a blessing in disguise.

Good fortune then... I do prefer Serrano chillies over jalepinos, better flavour and much hotter   :)
