    Good video, thanks for sharing this I found it very interesting.I am growing chillies for the first time this year from supermarket bought ones and they are doing reasonably well here in Northern England. The first flowers are appearing and I am genuinely looking forward to my first Jalapenos!

    "most of the heat is found in the seeds"…..nope, the heat comes from the white stuff that the seeds are attatched to (pith).

    Why do u dry the seeds? Its seems obsolite because after the drying phase u hydrate them back up. Cant u just put them in the ground without drying them first?

    Lots of good info, tons missing as well. Keep up the good work, maybe provide time to plant (zone wise) proper nutrition for the plant, quick pest info/control. Just my ideas brother. Happy gardening!

    Im having trouble finding a good place to kept my seeds warm to germinate. I live in hot south Texas- it’s 100+ degrees here and I read that’s much too hot. 😓😓 recommendations on where to keep them?

    I guess it's normal to have the leaves droop like that?? I bought mine from Walmart and it doesn't look like they care for it very well. The leaves were drooping, their were brown and had holes in it. I guess I bought it cause I wanted to saved it. Now I'm trying to grow one from its seeds. Cross fingers! 🙂

    cross-pollination shouldn't be an issue with the current crop; the effects would only be in the next generation, if you used the seeds. Although, since the heat in peppers is concentrated in the seeds and surrounding areas, maybe it would be noticeable in even the current crop.

    Correction: Actually most of the Heat is found in the fleshy membrane that HOLDS the seeds inside the pepper.

    I have crossed jalapenos with red peppers. I think any peppers can cross.

    Pot size depends largely on which cultivar of pepper you're growing. Most annuums don't need large pots as you said. However there are plenty of chilis in the cultivar Chinense, Baccatum, and Pubescens that will very much benefit from larger pots.

    The heat is never, never in the seeds!!! Heat is in the placenta that surrounding the seeds. It is a protection for the seeds before any sucking insects.

    You don't need to dry your seeds. You can plant them immediately.

    my jalapeno peppers live over 5 years or longer… after the first year they will produce pepper constantly the entire year. I have a tomato over a year and 3 egg plants over a year old.. I find these plants can live many years and they will be heavy producers

    for the most part you have good tips but what controls the heat on all peppers is the white vain that goes down alone the fresh of the pepper , and not the seeds just look it up thanks

    It’s a myth that the seeds hold all the heat. That is completely false, the seeds hold no heat at all. As a previous comment mentioned, the heat is in the inner membrane.
