General Info: The chili named after the town Jalapa (Veracruz) in Mexico is one of the most well known and most popular chilies in Mexico and the United States. The Jalapenos are popular, above all, due to their juicy, flavourful fruit flesh. The fruits reach a length of up to 8 cm and have thick fleshy fruit walls and rounded ends. The fruits often have a cracked, corked surface, which the Mexicans regard as a quality characteristic. Unripe Jalapeños are green, and when ripened they have a powerful red colour. When they are green, Jalapeños sometimes tend to have dark flecks, which disappear when they have ripened to red. Jalapeños belong to the few chillies which also taste good when they’re green and unripe. When they have ripened to red, their flavour takes on a pleasant sweetness. Due to their mild spiciness, Jalapenos are excellent for fresh consumption, as well as for cooking, stuffing, pickling and grilling.
