food, garden, Jalapeno, jalapeno pepper, plants, propagation
Browsing through my local super market yesterday I came across these peppers labeled as Jalapeno. The smooth pepper on the left I am familiar with, however the crinkly one on the right I am not. I have searched and searched and not found any Jalapeno which vaguely resembles this pepper. I am asking all you pepper buffs out there what type of pepper this is.
I plan to save the seeds from both and propagate in the Spring.

Chiles are so difficult to tell apart. Its even more difficult when they are stunted or deformed in the field.

yes they are, and they seem to cross pollinate as well. Thank you Arthur 🙂 *Brigid
