The JalapeĆ±o chilli pepper is arguably the most famous chilli pepper on the face of the planet!
The jalapeĆ±o (Castilian Spanish pronunciation: [xalapeo], Mexican Spanish pronunciation: [halapeo]) is a medium to large size chilli which is prized for its warm, burning sensation when eaten. When ripe, the jalapeĆ±o can be 2–3½ inches (5–9 cm) long and is almost always sold while still green. It is a variety of the species Capsicum annuum originating in Mexico.
It is named after the town of Xalapa, Veracruz, where it was traditionally produced. More than 160 square kilometers are dedicated for the cultivation of jalapeĆ±os in Mexico alone, primarily in the states of Veracruz and Chihuahua. JalapeĆ±os are also cultivated on a smaller scale in Jalisco, Nayarit, Sonora, Sinaloa and Chiapas. The jalapeĆ±o is known by different names throughout Old Mexico, such as cuaresmeĆ±os, huachinangos, and chilli's gordos, just to name a few
