With Jalapeno Peppers, the hotness is up to you. Certain parts (like the seeds inside) are the really fiery parts, so if you remove them, it dampens down the hotness. All great cooks use them.
When and Where to Plant: Start seeds indoors in a sunny, warm location
7-8 weeks before the last spring frost. Transplant to a sunny, well drained
location in the late spring after the soil has warmed. Loosen soil with a
spade or fork, fertilize with vegetable food and water thoroughly. Great in
containers and sunny flower beds.
Care: Keep soil moist, weed free, and feed every 4-6 weeks..
Harvesting: To avoid injuring plants, carefully cut or snap off fruits along
with a short piece of stalk. Full size hot peppers can be picked at any color,
but are spiciest when red.
