Pepper Jalapeno Story
Capsicum annuum is the most popular type of pepper in Mexico. It has been grown there for thousands of years. It was originally from Xalapa which is one of the oldest cities in Mexico. This is where the Jalapeno gets its name. The name literally means “from Jalapa”, or Xalapa. Another name for these notable peppers is “fat chili” and you will know why when you bite (or cut) into the first peppers you harvest. It has a loud crunch and thick walls filled with nutrients from vitamin C to potassium and packs a punch.
