Chilli Farmer Jalapeno Plant

Sold out
One of the strangest and most unusual chillies you will find. This variety is sometimes known as the "potato jalapeno" because the fruits skin have the appearance of a potato. The fruit start off looking as you would expect. As they mature the "corking" starts, this is the term for the flesh cracking and producing this unusual colour. This does not effect the taste, in fact in some parts of the world "corking" is desired.

Fruit Size:
Medium length with thick flesh
Ideal to cook with. This is a fantastic variety to stuff.
Ideal for container or pot?
Not the tallest of plants but it can need support. Would work well on a patio if you are able to stake it.

Is this plant "garden ready"?
As with all Chilli plants they love the heat. This is especially true when they are young. All Chilli starter plants should be grown on the windowsill or a greenhouse until they are established and the weather is warm.
What compost should I use?
A good quality multipurpose compost is ideal for this. You can use your own compost but make sure you know that it is not too high (or low) in nutrients.
What is a plug plant/starter plant?
A plug plant is a small starter plant that is perfect to pot up into a larger plant. We grow and sell so many of these because they allow us to do it for such a good price.
Will I get the plants in the picture?
Yes, In the main picture. As this plant is a starter plant it will not be fruiting but will grow to be the same as the picture. The plug (starter) plant picture is used to give you an idea of the size and may not be exactly the same plant.
