Developed by the Texas Agriculture Extension Service in 1992, this now open pollinated Jalapeño begins yellow, maturing to orange and finally turning red, if left on the plant long enough. Oro means gold in Spanish.
Very compact plants, with high yields. The size of the fruit is similar to the standard Jalapeño, but not as blocky. Heat and taste are also similar, but Jaloro has a slight fruity finish. While they can be used at any stage of coloration, they are most frequently used yellow.
Excellent disease resistance.
