Jalapeno Pepper Plants
Q.

Jalapenos not hot

Zone 44095-____ | Anonymous added on February 16, 2020 | Answered

My jalapeno crop is never hot, not even slightly. They taste pretty much like regular green peppers. Is there something about the soil they are in? Tomato and other peppers do well in the same soil. What could the problem be?
