Are jalapenos hotter when red?

Left on the plant (and even after picked) green jalapeños will eventually turn red. So red jalapeños are older than green jalapeños. The red ones can be pretty hot, especially if they have a lot of striations, but they are also sweeter than the green.

Which bell pepper is healthiest?

Red peppers pack the most nutrition, because they've been on the vine longest. Green peppers are harvested earlier, before they have a chance to turn yellow, orange, and then red. Compared to green bell peppers, the red ones have almost 11 times more beta-carotene and 1.5 times more vitamin C.

Are jalapenos spicy without the seeds?

Kitchen Fact: A chile pepper's spicy heat comes from the pith and ribs of the pepper, not the seeds. While the seeds may be coated with some of the capsaicin since they're in contact with the rib, they themselves don't actually contain any heat.

Why are my jalapenos not spicy?

When jalapeño plants are stressed, as when they are lacking water, the capsaicin increases resulting in hotter peppers. Jalapeño peppers too mild still? Another thing to try to correct the jalapeños not getting hot is to leave them on the plant until the fruit has fully matured and is a red color.
