Slightly hotter than the standard Jalapeno.
Jalapeno purple produces large bullet shaped fruits that turn deep purple before maturing to red with the full Jalapeno flavour and heat.. Used in Mexican dishes, Salsa, Pickling, Dried and Fresh.
These plants are also ornamental with purple flowers. When sliced and mixed the green Jalapenos they make a very hot and decorative dish.
Good fun to grow, early fruiting variety and something a "bit different" to the standard Jalapeno.
