Chili Jalapeno (C. annuum)

Jalapeño is pronounced ‘halapeno’ and originates from Xalapa in Mexico. It is a green bullet-shaped fruit of medium length 5-9cm by 2.5cm. the jalapeño heat level varies from mild to hot depending on cultivation and preparation and can have from a few thousand to over 10,000 Scoville heat units.

The number of scars forms on the surface of jalapeño skin, called ‘corking’, This corking process will occur when chillies have rapid growth and increase heat level. So, this process can happen to many hot peppers but not to sweet peppers. Some people may find corking on chillies unattractive but if you a hot chilli fan, this is a good thing.
