Jaloro Pepper (Yellow Jalapeño)


Scientific Classification

Capsicum annuum

Heat rating in Scovilles:

2500 – 10000

The Jaloro pepper was the first yellow jalapeño pepper created by the Texas Agriculture Extension Service in 1992. The fruit starts off a pale yellow, turns orange and finally red. It can be used at any stage of its maturation, but is commonly used and sold while yellow.

They tend to be larger than traditional green jalapeños (both are shown in the photo for comparision). In grocery stores they are sometimes just called “Yellow Peppers”. The flavor and heat is that of a jalapeño but with a slight fruit finish. Great for pickling.
