I grew these peppers from seed indoors iand then transplanted to the garden. I became known as the pepper lady around town, I was always giving jalapenos away because they were so productive - and I still made lots of salsa and pickled jalapenos to boot! One of my friends decided to crunch one raw as a snack and was in fits from the heat - he said it was the hottest jalapeno he'd had from a Michigan garden. I thought it was a 'typical' heat, but I guess a lot of folks in the area have fairly mild jalapenos.
