Hailing from Mexico, jalapeno peppers are not terribly difficult to grow and pack a medium-hot punch. Jalapeno peppers are typically grown outside during the summer and spring, but they can be successfully grown indoors.
The jalapeno pepper plant is a member of the hot pepper family and shares company with other fiery hot varieties such as tobacco, cayenne, and cherry. Jalapenos are the only pepper that isn’t allowed to fully ripen and change color before being picked. Growing jalapeno peppers isn’t difficult if you provide plants with good soil, plenty of sunlight and ample water. The tricks to growing jalapenos indoors include giving the plants plenty of room to grow, having a careful hand with watering, and giving the plant enough light to flower and bear fruit.
