Chilli Jalapeno Tam Plant


A milder Jalapeno that will matures quickly. The fruit go from light to dark green and then finally to a deep red. Jalapenos are often picked green, when they have a slightly fresher taste to them.

Fruit Size:
Medium sized chilli that will be around 5cm long and 2cm wide.
Fantastic to add to any dish you want to add some chilli flavour and heat to. Traditionally used in South American dishes.
Ideal for container or pot?
Grows well in a pot but not ideal in a very small space but a little to big for a windowsill as it will grow to 60cm in height and spread 35cm

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.
