Jalapeno M is the most prolific pepper plant I've grown. A single plant can produce enough peppers to keep a spice-loving household stocked from early summer until first frost, and with a second plant you can easily be freezing and canning them as well. I find the plant benefits from being caged, or else it can fall over when it is heavy with fruit. Very little pest damage, though Japanese beetles do leave small holes in the fruit occasionally.

An excellent open pollinated variety. One of the hotter jalapenos. Productive here, not competitive with the best hybrids, but ample for home gardens.
