The Jalapeno has a unique taste, but some find it just a bit too hot. Those (and others!) could try the Tam Jalapeno. This productive variety was developed by the Texas A & M University in the United States and is less hot, but has the same unique flavor as the ‘regular’ Jalapeno. The plants are slightly smaller and are very resistant to diseases. The peppers colors from green to red in about 70 to 80 days.
