History of the Plant

Usage of the jalapeno pepper dates back 1000s of years in South America. They were most notably cultivated and smoked for long-term storage, and thus the Chipotle pepper was born. With its origins in Mexico, the Jalapeño pepper’s name literally means “from Jalapa” (or Xalapa), which is a large city in Mexico.

Growing Media



Jalapeño pepper plants do best in well-balanced, loamy potting soil with a slightly acidic or neutral pH level. Plant outdoor jalapeños in the spring. 



Peppers, including jalapenos, do best in loamy, well-drained soil with plenty of organic matter. Full sun and warm temperatures are also important when growing jalapeno peppers.



You can grow jalapenos indoors hydroponically using a simple deep-water culture set-up. Peppers grow well with ebb and flow system along with rockwool slabs as a growing medium.




Give your jalapeños roughly an inch of water each week; this ensures that the soil is moist but not too saturated. Jalapeño plants will usually not require fertilizer unless they are in containers;



When it comes to fertilizing, jalapenos need lots of nutrients, so be prepared to use a lot of fertilizer, and use different balances of nutrients at different growth stages.



Plant jalapeños in your sunniest location or grow these compact plants in containers placed in full sun. They like a lot of sun and heat!



One of the benefits of pole beans is that they produce high yields very quickly, so make sure to keep picking off your beans as they mature if you want to maximize your plant’s productivity.



Mulching with black plastic or similar material is a good way to maintain heat and soil moisture. Additionally, floating row covers over your beds can help to protect against cold early in the growing season. Use caution with row covers not to overheat plants and cause them to drop their blossoms.




Jalapeños are rich in vitamins A and C and potassium. They also have carotene — an antioxidant that may help fight damage to your cells – as well as folate, vitamin K, and B vitamins
