You must be shopping in some big chain store where they sell hot house raised peppers. What stores are you buying these from?

HEB and Kroger mostly. Even the pretty good restaurant I just got fajitas from had these mega size no heat ones. There's a few Fiestas nearby so maybe I'll check them out.

They breed all the hot peppers to be mild. So people with sensitive mouths dont cry when they eat them.

If you are in the DFW area, try Fiesta. They have quite a selection of different types of peppers, including good jalepenos

No I know the difference. Even if I didn't I can read the little tag on the bin.

We have Fiesta too. It's just a hike. I thought HEB was the bomb for all the right stuff.

Hmm.. my local HEB's are solid here in Central Texas. Some of their warning labels are meant with compassion,

What is the process where you suddenly decide, around noon on a Saturday, these f’n peppers aren’t as hot as they should be? ‘I’m going to start a thread on a boating / fishing forum’.
You have to grow your own or find a small market.

It's not the store. For decades these peppers were universally about 2-3 inches and had a kick. Like the ones you get when you buy them in cans, pickled. Out of nowhere I started noticing these giant ones that had no kick at all.

Too much liability. Kathy might rub her eyes and then sue the store that sold them. As others have suggested, grow your own. Even I can grow them.

The fresh jalapenos I've been getting lately are very mild. Almost no heat what-so-ever. Very disappointing.
