A mature jalapeño fruit is 2 to 3½ inches long and is commonly picked and consumed while still green, but occasionally it is allowed to fully ripen and turn crimson red. Originally of Spanish origin, the jalapeño is named after Xalapa (pronounced ha-la-pa), Veracruz where it was traditionally cultivated. This region of Mexico continues to be the primary region for its cultivation.

Jalapeños rate between 2,500–10,000 Scoville heat units. Compared to other chilis, the jalapeño has a heat level that varies from mild to hot depending on cultivation and preparation. The heat, caused by capsaicin and is concentrated in the membrane surrounding the seeds.*

Mrs. Sassard's Hot Pepper Jelly is prepared from freshly harvested jalapeño and bell peppers, pure cane sugar and natural pectin.

Health Benefits

Like other peppers,jalapeños are a rich source of vitamin C, with almost 17 milligrams in a small pepper. That is equal to 18 percent of the recommended daily allowance for men and 23 percent for women. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps prevent damage from free radicals, rogue molecules that can cause cell damage in your body. Jalapeños also supply a good amount of vitamin A, which supports skin and eye health; one pepper offers 17 percent of the RDA for men and 22 percent for women.

Weight loss benefits without the burn? The capsaicin in peppers has been shown to slightly curb appetite. And peppers can raise body temperature. That warming effect may have another benefit that may help with weight loss.
