Jaluv An Attitude Hot Pepper - Organic

(75 days) Open-pollinated. Earth-passionate breeder relentless blended at least three kinds of peppers into its pedigree, although it looks like a jalapeño in both shape and size. In the breeder’s own words: “If I had to have one chili on a desert island, it used to be a jalapeño. Now maybe not. This new chili is the result of a cross between an open-pollinated jalapeño and (my own) original that was called 45° N Attitude. The object was to have a thicker-skinned 45° with a lot of jalapeño flavor. The 45° N had thin skin, delicious hot fruity flavor, and dried and produced well in northern latitudes. My overriding intent in crossing them was to obtain the best combination of both.” Got attitude? 2,500–8,000 Scoville units. OSSI. 2008 Fedco introduction. Breeder Royalties.

Additional Information

Hot Peppers

Avg. 140–160/g, with a range from 100–200/g.

Hybrid pepper seed is expensive so A-size packets are modest. 0.1g packets contain 10-20 seeds. We pack by weight and not by seed count so there will be variation.

Chiles have been consumed in Mexico for more than 5,000 years. In the U.S. hot peppers have increased dramatically in popularity.

Capsaicin compounds cause most of the heat in peppers. Warm nighttime temperatures stimulate maximum development of capsaicins and increase pungency levels. Pungency is expressed in Scoville units, after Wilbur Scoville, an Englishman who devised the method used for eighty years to measure the heat in peppers.

Some Scoville ratings for general categories are: sweet bell, Banana and Pimiento peppers 0, Ancho & Poblano 1–2k, Anaheim 0.5–2.5k, Bulgarian Carrot 2.5k, Jalapeño 2.5–8k, Chipotle 5–8k, Long thick Cayenne 6–8.5k, Hot Wax 5–9k, Serrano 8–22k, Aji & Cayenne 30–50k, Super Chili 40–50k, Thai 50–100k, Orange Habanero/Scotch Bonnet 150–325k, commercially available pepper spray for self-defense 2–3M, police-grade spray 5.3M, capsaicin 15–16M.

If you overdose on hot peppers, plain carbs like bread, rice or tortillas are better than any liquid at removing the heat from your mouth. Handle hot peppers with caution; capsaicin is highly alkaloid and can burn skin.

Peppers

Capsicum annuum

For all peppers, days to full-color maturity are from transplanting date.

~160 seeds/g. Capsicum comes from the Greek kapto which means ‘bite.’

Culture: Very tender, will not tolerate frost, dislike wind, will not set fruit in cold or extremely hot temperatures or in drought conditions. Start indoors in March or April. Set out in June. Black plastic highly recommended. Row cover improves fruit set in windy spots. Pick first green peppers when they reach full size to increase total yield significantly. Green peppers, though edible, are not ripe. Peppers ripen to red, yellow, orange, etc.

Minimum germination soil temperature 60°, optimal range 68-95°.

Diseases:

  • BLS: Bacterial Leaf Spot
  • CMV: Cucumber Mosaic Virus
  • TMV: Tobacco Mosaic Virus

Seed-saving tips: Use only the first fruits for seed; allow only 3–4 fruits per plant to grow and remove all others. Fewer fruits = larger seeds = greater seed viability. Later fruits often have germination rates of only 60%.
