About Hot Pepper Seeds - Capitan F1

Capsicum annuum

Seed Type Hybrid Seed
Plant Type Jalapeno

No garden is complete without an assortment of hot peppers and our Capitan F1 variety is the quintessential jalapeno-type. These prolific chili pepper bushes are both easy to grow and high-yielding, producing three-inch, deep green peppers that bring medium heat (10,000 to 25,0000 Scoville units). They make an excellent choice for medium-heat salsas and are perfect for stuffing and roasting. The more sun for these bushes, the better. Give them a little cage or staking for support in the garden and watch them explode!

These seeds are coated with a fungicidal treatment that protects them from pests and disease during the seeding and germination phases.
