*The name “Jalapeño Green” does not refer to a single variety but rather to any underripe jalapeño that isn’t purple. Please click on its “other names” to see the individual strains.

**This value represents the heat rating that I would expect to give to a sauce using this pepper as its main ingredient. Other ingredients or particularly high purity may result in a slightly stronger sauce, while lower concentrations will yeild a weaker one and other products may vary.
