When do You Pick Jalapeno Peppers?

If you are growing jalapeno peppers and not sure when to harvest them here is some information to help you out with that. You do pick them when they are still green but some choose to let them some turn red on the plant and use them for a color variation. One thing to keep in mind when handling jalapeno peppers as in slicing them up is to wear gloves as they contain an oil that will stay on the hands and will burn your eye if you touch anywhere close to that area.
