What are the pros? Prolific, low-maintenance
What are the cons? Plant spreads out horizontally
This is a followup to my previous review. These peppers continue to be my standard jalapeno cultivar, since they are tasty, prolific, and HOT.
HOWEVER. They like to spread out. I plant one per 4'x4' area, and they seem to always end up trying to reach out to each other. If you really, really, really like hot peppers, then three of these for one person (in a 12'x4' bed, obviously) would be enough. This time of year, here in zone 8a, I'm clipping and freezing peppers from them about twice a week. I end up with enough to carry me through all the way until the next season, with my three plants. (And I make a lot of hot/spicy dishes in the winter.)
