The Hossinator Jalapeno Pepper is a hybrid, moderate heat jalapeno pepper that offers growers a unique combination of size, quality, pungency, yield potential, and earliness. This variety produces very large fruit, and has moderate cracking; it is widely adaptive to most growing regions. This popular pepper has very consistent high fruit quality that delivers fruits with good size, smooth exterior with a dark green color. Plants will grow to 3-4' tall and produce thick-walled fruits that are 3-4" long. If left on the plant, fruits will mature from green to red. Red jalapeños, which are also called "chipotles", are more flavorful than the green fruits. As will all hot peppers, the level of heat will be primarily determined by the amount of water the plant receives. Capsicum annuum. 60 days to maturity.
Peppers are in the nightshade family along with tomatoes and eggplant. Plants in the nightshade family are susceptible to blossom end rot, which is a result of a calcium deficiency. To prevent or alleviate this problem, apply pelleted gypsum at the base of the plant at bloom set. Peppers do best when transplanted, as the germination time can be longer than most vegetable seed. Peppers grow very well in our heavy-duty seed starting trays. Plants should be started 4-6 weeks before the intended outdoor planting date. Peppers can produce heavy fruits and will require some form of support to keep the plant upright. We recommend using the Florida Weave trellising technique that involves using stakes and twine along the row. This ensures that plants and fruits stay off the ground, reducing the possibility of disease and keeping fruits clean.
