The Jalapeño（Capsicum annuum） is a medium-sized chili pepper pod . A mature jalapeño chili is 3-4 inch long and hangs down with a round, firm, smooth flesh of 1.5 inch wide. It can have a range of pungency, with Scoville heat units of 3,500 to 8,000. The plants grow to a mature height of roughly 24 to 30 inches high. These are productive plants, each producing around 23-30 peppers. Growth Jalapeño peppers need full sun and well-drained soil.
