My late summer poblano's can be pretty warm, but the heat doesn't linger in my mouth. When I take a bite, I get a burst of heat and then it is gone very quickly/

The fooled you jalapeno's do have a good taste, but (and it is a big "but" for me) I can't get accustomed to eating jalapenos without any heat. Somehow, it doesn't seem right. In appearance and size, they look like the TAM jalapeno. When harvesting, be careful to not mix them because I don't think you can identify the hot jalapeno from the the heatless by sight.
