FATHER’S DAY GIFT: Jalapeño Plant

Here’s something fun for chile-loving dads who’d like to try their hand at gardening.

You can look for a jalapeño plant at your local nursery, or give Dad the “ingredients” to grow his own.

Combine a packet of seeds, a planter and soil, along with some fresh jalapeños to show Dad what’s in store in 62 days, the time it takes for the planted seeds to mature.

The particular hybrid in the photo, a Burpee exclusive, is a very low heat jalapeño, enabling the savory jalapeño flavor to be enjoyed by non-heat foodies. Its name: False Alarm.

These mild, tasty jalapeños are excellent for roasting, nachos, poppers, salads and salsas. “It’s the perfect little hardly-hot pepper for small gardens and containers,” says Burpee.

Get the seeds at Burpee.com.
