A jalapeno pepper is a type of chili pepper. It’s a fruit of the Capsicum pod type. Compared to other chili pepper, it is a medium sized pepper, measuring an average of 2 to 3.5 inches in length.

A jalapeno pepper originates from Mexico, but it is now grown worldwide for its popular flavor and mild heat level, which is about 5,000 Scoville Heat Units. This is hot, but not a lot.

You can find them served when they are green, but if you leave them on the plant long enough, they will turn red. The red variety is also delicious, though a touch sweeter. A mature jalapeno pepper plant typically produces around 30 to 40 jalapeno pepper pods and measures 2 to 3 feet in height. In case you grow them in your own garden, you should pick them regularly since the plant continues to produce.

Chili peppers are very healthy for you and should be included in your diet. Here are some health benefits of chili peppers:

  • Chili peppers contain lots of vitamin C.
  • Chili peppers help protect the heart.
  • Chili peppers can help lose weight.
  • Chili peppers help soothe intestinal diseases.
  • Chili peppers fight inflammation.
  • Chili peppers help lower high blood pressure.
  • Chili peppers fight cancer.
  • Chili peppers relieve congestion.
  • Chili peppers fight migraine headaches.
