When are jalapeno peppers ready to pick and what color is hottest?

I'm not sure if I should pick them when they are green or wait til they turn another color.

Usually the first peppers are ready to harvest from 75 to 90 days from transplanting. Hot peppers are typically green.

You can start picking jalapenos when they become a deep, dark green and are full-sized (approximately 3 inches long). Red is the final stage and when they are hottest.
