Jalapenos going cherry red!
Finally! My Jalapenos are going red, so proud of this harvest.
We have harvested our first three red jalapenos and will be making chilli poppers soon, will post a link to the recipe once that happens.
Here is a link to my original jalapeno post. I’ve left the jalapenos and they have started to turn red the one after the other. When it reached full red colour I harvested it. There are about 8 more to follow from our small plant, so impressed with it.
I must say this plant is quite fuss free, it just need lots of water and a good spray against plant lice every once in a while. I only use an organic spray.
To prevent the ‘dent’ in the jalapeno remove the dried flower when it starts to form a jalapeno. If the flower does not fall off by itself it restrains the growth and effects the form of your jalapeno.
Do plant your own food! Not only is it rewarding, but so exciting to see the veggies grow.
