Growing Jalapenos Indoors: A Step-by-Step Guide

Are you tired of bland meals and boring garden plants? Look no further than the trusty jalapeño pepper!

Not only do these little powerhouses pack a punch of flavor, but they also make for a beautiful addition to any garden.

These Capsicum annum plants and member of the nightshade family are easy to grow and maintain, bearing fruit for over five years.

Whether you’re whipping up some salsa, grilling for a BBQ, or just want to add a little heat to your sandwich, jalapeño peppers are the perfect choice. They always seem to find there way in my smoker with some cream cheese and bacon wrapped for some kick.

Don’t let their relatively low Scoville rating fool you – they may not be as scorching as the Carolina Reaper (with over two million), but they’re sure to bring some fire to your taste buds and your garden.

Like bell peppers, jalapenos are perennial plants that can keep growing and fruiting.

I have always loved planting peppers in my garden, especially during the summer season. Pepper plants can come in a variety of colors, sizes, shapes,  heat intensities, and flavors of peppers.

My favorites are the sweet and mild bell pepper varieties, although I love using hot peppers once in a while.

Having a pepper garden is very practical. Aside from the fresh ripe peppers available anytime, the colorful peppers are also pleasing to look at in the garden. 

The pepper plant is sturdy and has relatively shallow root systems that grow close to the soil’s surface. When pepper plants are full of plump peppers, their branches tend to bend and break, especially during strong winds.
