How To Grow Red Ruben Jalapeno Pepper From Seed: Jalapeno peppers do best when grown in a greenhouse as they require plenty of heat. Sow in small pots or seedling modules. Sow 1 - 2 seeds per pot/cell. Cover lightly with compost and keep moist. Pepper seed germination will be best if kept at room temperature, or above while germinating. When the seedlings get their first true leaves, pot them on into larger pots. Repeat this as the plant grows, giving it a bigger pot as it grows. 

After the plant flowers, the peppers will start to grow. They will turn from green to red as they ripen. They can be harvested once they are fully developed, even while still green.
