What differentiates red jalapenos from green jalapenos is basically age. While the green peppers are picked when they are young, red chilies are allowed to mature longer on the plant, thus developing more capsaicin (the hot compound). The green fruit is fresher and milder tasting than the hot, sweet red chili.
