I got a couple of Mucho Nacho plants pretty late (More of an experiment for me on my balcony since I never tried to raise them before) but I have some nice looking peppers coming on. Looks like there will be several too. Yum Yum!


Mucho Nacho are a hybrid and im not sure if they are stabilized or not. Plants grown from your pepper seeds may or may not grow true. Like you though i am saving seeds from mine also. i LOVE Mucho Nacho...Killer production and flavor with just the right amount of heat. Im also saving seeds from another jalapeno hybrid called Chichimeca.

Mine is a beast of a plant and production is just nutz.

I was seeing all the peppers you and others were raising in buckets, and got to thinking it might be a good way to use my apartments Deck. I have been buying lots of Jalapenos to make Spicy Carrots and even took them back home. My Brother now calls and asks me to "Bring me more". :lol: So one day last month i spotted some nice looking plants at a local store and decided to try raising a couple this year. They were about 11" tall and very slender stems when I transplanted them. i forget if i got them on Saturday the 8th or first of July so they are only about a month old now. The plant on the left was 33" tall and the other is 31" and both stalks are as big as my thumb. Seems to can see them and the peppers grow each day. You can't really see all the peppers in the pics bit both have like 20 peppers growing or starting. i want to see how big they will get. I read that the Much Nacho grow a little bigger and meatier pepper, is that right? They sure are looking good to me for plants only about a month old. Its about all I can do to hold off taking a couple to try. Might have to try them and something else too next year, maybe a Marconi smokey pepper for stir fry.

Mucho Nacho produce larger pods than Early or Jalapeno M but not as large as Mammoth, Goliath of Giganti. They do however taste way better than the larger jalapenos ive tried. I grew the "jumbos" 2 years in a row and everyone had almost no heat and flavorless. I will never grow those again. I would rather grow Anaheims if i want mild....At least they taste really good...I do have some Anaheims growing though that are hotter than most jalapenos....They are called Lumbre and they really got some zip to them.

This is one of my good sized Mucho Nachos but ive had larger ones.
