Big Jalapenos

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Anyone notice a size increase on the jalapenos lately?

There was a thread on this topic on another forum and I had not noticed anything here until I went on Friday to get the ABT fixings..........everyone of them was huge......at least in comparision to what I am used to seeing around here.

Put it on the $20 for a size reference........there were even bigger ones than this there. eek.gif

I personally think it's the twenties that are shrinking... PDT_Armataz_01_08.gif

Just check your gasoline expenditures for confirmation.

I'm thinking I should print out a couple copies of that pic and stick them next to the tiny little Japs I got in my garden and in pots , just to show them what they should grow up to look like biggrin.gif

They seem to be about the same size in my area. Here's a comparison to a tape measure (actually size tape)/

Mammoth Hot Peppers


77 days. Capsicum annuum. (F1) Plant produces heavy yields of huge 4 ¾" long by 1 ¾" wide Jalapeno hot peppers. Peppers are hot, have thick flesh, and turn from medium dark green to red when mature. Plant has green stems, green leaves, and white flowers. Excellent pickling variety. Excellent stuffed with cheese and baked or grilled. Plant produces peppers continuously

NMSU released three other type japs In 1997. I have these mammoth ones planted in the garden specificly for ABTs, But my herd of guinnie hens found them and all there is is tooth pick looking things in the garden. the byrds should be seasoned well.
A huge crop might have come in and the buyers from around the US picked them up and sre shipping..get em while you can..

yes, ive noticed the huge sized jalapenos this year. That is some serious fire power in its raw seeded state. although jalapenos loose their heat when cooked in a smoker or on a grill. the big ones i use a whole slice of bacon to wrap each half. last year a half of a slice worked well.

Yep, I've noticed that around here as well, huge Japs. I told my wife a couple of weeks ago, that they must have gotten these japs from Chernobyl farms.
