The Jalapeño pepper is named after the city of Xalapa in Mexico, where the pepper was traditionally cultivated. Its first recorded appearance was with Aztecs in the 16th century - used in cooking, medicine and certain cultural ceremonies. Nowadays, Jalapeños are grown extensively across Mexico and the thick-walled fruits are known worldwide. Although they are usually eaten at the green stage, either fresh or pickled, the fruits ripen to red and are amazingly sweet when allowed to do so.
