Frequently Asked Questions About Jalapeno Seeds

  1. Can you plant jalapeno seeds straight from the pepper? Yes, you can plant jalapeno seeds directly from a fresh pepper. However, for the best germination results, it’s recommended to dry the seeds first. Fresh seeds may have excess moisture that can lead to mold or rot. Drying them ensures they are in optimal condition for planting.
  2. How many jalapeños can you get from one seed? The number of jalapeños produced from one seed can vary widely depending on several factors like the plant’s growing conditions, care, and health. A single jalapeno plant, which grows from one seed, can produce anywhere from 25 to 40 peppers in a growing season under optimal conditions.
  3. Should I leave the seeds in jalapeños? Whether to leave the seeds in jalapeños depends on your preference for heat. The seeds and the white membrane inside the pepper are where most of the capsaicin is concentrated, which gives the jalapeño its spiciness. Removing them will reduce the heat of the pepper in culinary uses.
  4. Are jalapeños spicy because of the seeds? While jalapeño pepper seeds contribute to the pepper’s spiciness, they are not the only source. The majority of the capsaicin (the compound that provides the heat) is actually concentrated in the white pith or membrane that holds the seeds. The seeds themselves absorb some of this heat, so they can also be quite spicy.
