here's a tip - even the rotten peppers that squish in your fingers as you try to pick them are H O T and the hot doesn't wash off easily... :roll:

reread my other post, please. you're not here to argue, eh?

perhaps you can post a thread telling all your tips and experience for growing jalapenos. if you'd like, i'll stop posting anything related to jalapenos and chipotles altogether and you can take over. have a great night.

Will jalapenos continue to ripen off the vine? Just wondering, I know some fruits do and some don't.

yes.

from wikipedia:
"Once picked, individual peppers ripen to red of their own accord. The peppers can be eaten green or red."
