Colossus Jalapeno Pepper is a hybrid jalapeno variety that produces extra-large fruits on extremely vigorous plants. These fruits are twice as large as traditional jalapeño varieties and grow as large as 5″ long. The fruits are uniformly-shaped and have thick walls, which makes them a green option for slicing into rings. Colossus is hotter than most jalapeno varieties, but the heat can be controlled by removing the seeds or membrane before eating. This is great variety for pickling or stuffing and throwing on the grill.

Peppers are in the nightshade family along with tomatoes and eggplant. Plants in the nightshade family are susceptible to blossom end rot, which is a result of a calcium deficiency. To prevent or alleviate this problem, apply pelleted gypsum at the base of the plant at bloom set. Peppers do best when transplanted, as the germination time can be longer than most vegetable seeds. Peppers grow very well in our heavy-duty seed starting trays. Plants should be started 4-6 weeks before the intended outdoor planting date.

If conditions outside are favorable, transplants may be planted directly from our 162 cell trays. If conditions are still too cold for planting peppers, transplants may be “stepped-up” to 4″ pots to allow more room to grow. Peppers can produce heavy fruits and will require some form of support to keep the plant upright. We recommend using the Florida Weave trellising technique that involves using stakes and twine along the row. This ensures that plants and fruits stay off the ground, reducing the possibility of disease and keeping fruits clean.
