Jalapeño Chilli Pepper Hot Sauces

The Jalapeño chilli pepper is a medium-sized chilli pepper of the species Capsicum annuum.

A mature jalapeño fruit is 5–10 cm (2–4 in) long and hangs down with a round, firm, smooth flesh of 1–1.5 in (25–38 mm) wide.

It is of mild to medium pungency, having a range of 3,500 to 8,000 Scoville units, depending on cultivar. Commonly picked and consumed while still green, it is occasionally allowed to fully ripen and turn red, orange or yellow.
