I kinda snickered when I first read this.  $.25 for a jalapeno!

However.... we started picking jalapenos a few days ago and that will 
be my retail price on the early ones.  We have charged $1 per pint 
retail; this year, we started at $1.25.  A few years ago Bill Bradshaw 
recommended Conchos here; I've be using that variety for a while with 
mixed results.  The early peppers are enormous; 6 or 7 to a pint.  
Like most varieties, size seems to decline as the season progresses.  
I believe Bill has gone on to even better varieties, but Conchos still 
look good to me.

Willie, ONWARD!  Through the fog!
