The Jalafuego is believed to be one of the spiciest Jalapeno varieties. “Fuego” is Spanish for “heat,” and these jalapeno peppers deliver more heat than the traditional Jalapeno pepper, typically averaging between 4,000 to 8,000 Scoville Heat Units. Jalafuego peppers are valued for their extra kick of heat and are commonly used in spicy dishes, salsas, and hot sauces. They are a popular choice for those who enjoy the flavor of jalapeños but prefer more spiciness in their dishes.

Jalafuego peppers also have a high level of disease resistance, making them terrific options for growing at home. It’s big, averaging four inches in length with the possibility of reaching up to six inches long. Its size provides even more cavity space, which is perfect for poppers. 

Jalafuegos follow the typical aging pattern of the traditional Jalapeno – from green to red, gaining in spiciness the longer they ripen. The flavor profile is also similar as it is often described as bright and fresh with slightly earthy undertones.
