My jalapeno plant is nearing 5 feet tall and it is not producing any jalapenos. What's wrong?

It will flower and produce peppers when the weather conditions are just right. Hold off on fertilizer - nitrogen can encourage lots of green growth but at the expense of flowering and fruit setting. Just be patient with your plant - it will eventually produce peppers.
