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.

This is strange to me. Why on earth would anyone want a jalapeno with no heat? Making some stuffed jalapenos on the grill tonight, and they are hot!

I agree with you, But apparently a lot of folks want the Jalapeno flavor with no heat as the developers keep introducing the no-heat varieties. Has to be a good demand for them.

How does the flavor compare with, say, Anaheim - or other mild but thin-skinned peppers? I do like the cultivar name, very clever.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

Essentially a sweet pepper with Jalapeno flavor. Maybe similar to a comparison between a Sweet Banana type and a Hot Banana type.

Because some folks have a sensitivity/intolerance to capsicum. It blisters the inside of my mouth. I taste no flavor, I only experience pain. I just bought one of these marvelous plants and now I get why everyone loves Jalepenos so much. If you can taste the flavor, that's delicious. But I have never tasted it long enough to experience it before today. I have a fractional second of flavor, then intense burning pain, with even the mildest of hot peppers... and sometimes even too much black pepper.

It's actually a very odd experience to eat one of these.... my nose is screaming at my brain DANGER! But the pain isn't arriving. It's quite tasty!

@elizabeta, glad it works for you! I'll have to get a plant to try on my friends who can't take the heat.
