Jalapeno Orange Spice

Capsicum Annuum

The orange spice jalapeno is another prolific jalapeno to add to your existing chillies. Although moderately spicy, they provide a fruity citrus taste packed with nutrition.

These jalapeno pods start off green and then turn into a refreshing orange colour as it matures. The pods grow to a size of 5 centimetres and has a thick flesh with a spicy flavour of about 3 times the heat compared to the standard jalapeno.

Heat Factor: Orange Spice Jalapenos rates at 80 000 on Scoville Heat units.

Chilli peppers grow best in hot climates and won’t tolerate frost, and they enjoy full sun. The ideal growing temperatures are between 20 and 30 degrees Celsius.

Chillies can grow in containers as long as they are positioned on a sun-filled windowsill. The size of the pot should be at least 10cm in diameter. When you notice roots growing out of the drainage holes, it is time to replant into a larger container.
