Giant Jalapeno Bred Specifically For Cheesy Poppers


Thanks to our addiction to jalapeno poppers, science has come up with a new breed of jalapeno that is genetically engineered for the optimum cheesy, fried payload.

The NuMex Jalmundo, as it has been dubbed, is a cross between a bell pepper and a traditional jalapeno—so it is much larger than a traditional jalapeno with medium heat. This profile makes it perfect for making poppers.

The seeds will be available commercially next year, but you can buy them right now from NMSU’s Chile Pepper Institute for $4 a package.
