How do you know when to pick Jalapeno peppers? Do they turn red? I've been watching my Jalapeno peppers grow bigger, but they're not changing colors.
I've experienced this first hand! Be mean to your peppers and they'll be mean back. I grew some scotch bonnets (habanero) and forgot to water a few times (I was younger then and not quite so responsible) and they were hotter than blazes.hendi_alex wrote:For hotter jalapeÃ±os, grow in full sun, hold back water to slightly stress the plant, harvest after little crescent marks appear on the fruit. Of course hotness varies by variety, by plant, and by other growing conditions and other factors therefore is not totally predictable.
