Hybrid. Telica is a jalapeño chilli producing sausage-shaped fruit that turn from green to red as they mature. The thick-fleshed fruit are large for a jalapeño, measuring 3.5 x 10cm, and their surface is often marked by corky striations, a trait that only adds to their appeal. The medium-sized plants produce fruit earlier and in greater abundance than the hotter, 'Early Jalapeno' variety (which we also sell). If given strong support, Telica can be grown in containers such as large pots and grow bags.

This is the mildest of the jalapeño varieties that we sell, and is excellent stuffed.

Essential in both Mexican and Southwest American cuisine, jalapeños are as versatile as they are well known, and are equally at home when pickled, added to salsas, baked into corn bread, or sliced into rings for pizza toppings.Though the fruit are traditionally eaten green – when they have a herbaceous, green pepper flavour – they are equally as good when red ripe.
