    I've planted these from starts the past couple years and they've produced well for me. I like the larger size of these jalapeƱos and the flavor is great. They are thick walled and tasty when both green and red. I always forget to find seeds for these because Pine Tree doesn't carry them.

    Large, thick-walled, jalapeno-type peppers. Moderately hot, heat seems to be somewhat variable. Excellent producer in my northern garden, this is a variety that I have grown every year for at least 8 years. Great for adding to salsa, making "poppers," and pickling. Green turning to bright red when ripe.
