Thick-walled and juicy dark green peppers that are 8cm (3″) long and about 2cm(1″) wide with a blunt end. If there are still green peppers on the plant at the end of the season, pull up the whole plant and hang in a dry spot for it to finish ripening to red. Use green peppers for fresh eating, pickling, and sauces, and dry the red ones. Works well in three to five gallon containers, and is suitable for patio growing. Dried, smoked jalapenos are known as chipotle.
