Have they finally bred the heat out of Jalapenos?

Duppie | Apr 20, 2010 08:33 PM

Perhaps it's just me but over the past year or so I have encountered milder and milder Jalapenos until tonight I asked for my usual bowl of Pho with onions and Jalapenos on the side, and there was absolutely no heat at all. None! It might as well have been a bell pepper.
So is it just me? or have the growers finally engineered all the heat out of the Jalapeno?
