About Jalapeño

Green Jalapeño chile peppers, botanically classified as Capsicum annuum and belongs to the Solanaceae or nightshade family. Green Jalapeño chile peppers are a moderately hot variety ranging 2,500-8,000 SHU on the Scoville scale and are utilized globally in fusion cuisines for their grassy flavor. In the United States and Mexico, Jalapeño chile peppers are one of the most common varieties found fresh in markets and are favored in salsa, hot sauces, and are pickled for use as a condiment.

Jalapeños are native to Xalapa, also spelled Jalap in Mexico, which is the capital city of Veracruz, Mexico, and have been cultivated since ancient times. Spanish and Portuguese explorers introduced the pepper to Europe and Asia in the 15th and 16th centuries and since then, the peppers have become cultivated worldwide. Today, the majority of Jalapeño commercial production is located in northern Veracruz, Chihuahua, specifically Delicias, and the lower Palaloapan River Valley in the state of Oaxaca. Its popularity in the United States also has grown significantly since the 1980’s and is cultivated in New Mexico, Texas, and California.

Jalapeño peppers were the very first pepper to travel into space in 1982 on the Space Shuttle Columbia. The five-day mission was to place communication satellites into orbit, and fellow astronaut Sherwood Springs gave home-grown Jalapeños to the space crew as a treat to eat in space. Fresh produce is one of the most requested items from astronauts, and Jalapeños have a longer shelf life in space than the average 2-3 days for other produce items. Jalapeños also have the ability to add flavor without emitting a strong odor, which is vital in the enclosed space capsule as scents do not dissipate.

Green Jalapeño chile peppers are an excellent source of vitamin C and contain copper, magnesium, vitamins A, E, and K, folate, manganese, fiber, potassium, and iron.
