Mine was a Bonnie Plants set, planted Feb 22, blooms by April 12th, prolific producer for me. Flavor is NOT a sweet pepper, distinctive jalapeno flavor with no heat at all. By June 15th plant is 60" high, 30" wide, zone 9a. Plant is a hybrid.

A new introduction in the heatless jalapeno group. I picked up a plant out of curiosity. Grows like a jalepeno. looks like a jalapeno, just no heat at all. Only one plant, and I did not have Felicity, Fooled You, or False Alarm for comparison, so I can make no judgment as to its relative merits in this class. Performance is average compared to standard Jalapeno.
