Yes, there is a difference between red and green jalapenos . Red jalapeno is fully ripe, while green jalapeno is not ripe. Red jalapenos are the sweetest and green can be slightly bitter or flavor-less. If you are growing jalapenos at home, to get red jalapenos you have to make sure all the flowers are gone and you leave it to ripen as they start off green and won€™t turn red until there are no flowers left on the plant.
