Rare Mexican Pepper, medium hot with an unusually dark, chocolate brown caste to the bell-like, dangling fruits.  Used mainly in making mole (recipe under "more info.")  I have worked with these in the kitchen, and the taste, color and texture they add to pepper preparations is really quite remarkable.  I put fresh peppers, including a few chilhuacle negro, in the blender, add 1 1/2 tablespoon salt, then sufficient apple cider vinegar to allow the contents to grind up in a nice vortex.  The chilhuacle make the whole preparation smooth and dark brown like chocolate!

Pepper, Jalapeno (Capsicum annuum), packet of 50 seeds, organic

Jalapenos are easy to grow and the load of fruit on the compact bushes is really a bit absurdly large for the size of the plant.  The word "overloaded" comes to mind.  The fruits are thick-skinned and blunt, fat even, and are best used for pickling and for making chile. They are pretty hot.
