Nacho lovers: it’s time to up your game and add jalapeño peppers to your garden! This pretty, prolific hot pepper tastes terrific, plus it’s easy to grow in a variety of conditions—dry or humid, hot or cool climate, or even in-ground or in a container. Its adaptability, fabulous flavor, and high yields make it the most popular chile pepper in the U.S. The 3-inch, mildly hot peppers mature from a dark green to a scarlet red. Thick-walled, abundant fruit create the perfect salsa, poppers, or chipotle sauce. Homegrown jalapeño peppers may vary in heat, depending on growing conditions. Don’t worry if you see a bit of netting pattern on the pepper’s skin—it won’t affect the flavor. Add a cage or stake to your pepper when planting to support stems when heavy with fruit. Place in full sun, and feed regularly. Scoville heat units: 2,500 to 5,000. Matures in 72 days. Read More

Welcome your Plant

1. Remove Packaging

Take each individual bonnie plant out of the box before carefully opening each individual plant’s packaging. Be cautious of soil that may have shifted during transportation.

2. Check the Soil

Your plants were watered right before shipping, but they may have become thirsty during travel. If the soil is dry to the touch, give your plants a good drink before planting.

3. Adjustment Period

Let your plants get used to their new environment. Set them in a warm, sunny spot for 34 to 48 hours so they can recover from their trip before being planted.

Long term Care

1. Location, location

Find the right spot for your plant. Check each plant’s tag for information on how much sun your plan’s need. Growing tip: if your plant needs full sun, a south-facing area will give you the most sunlight. If your plan can grow in part shade, an east or west-facing window might be enough.

2. Soil & drainage

Making sure your container has holes to allow excess water to drain is vital to your plant’s health! We recommend planting your Bonnie Plant in Miracle-Gro Potting Mix for containers, or Miracle-Gro Garden Soil for planting in ground.

3. Hungry plants

Feeding your plants is one of the best ways to improve your plant’s health and maximize your harvest. We recommend feeding with Miracle-Gro plant food when you transplant, and feeding regularly following label directions for best results.
