White lines begin to appear due to stress events like sun, lack of water, or simply maturing too long
Soon those white lines stretch out, and the pepper begins to change from green to orange/red. Those will be the spiciest.

So basically, jalapenos that are spoon fed are white glove, but those peppers from the hard streets that seen some **** are spicier for it

I must disagree with you completely. You can't predict the heat of a jalapeno by looking at it. Maybe some of the other peppers, but not jalapenos.

These photos depict 3 peppers that I picked off of the same plant in my garden. The red one and the green one are very close in heat, with the red one being very slightly hotter and somewhat sweeter.

However, the center one that has partially turned red is considerably hotter than either of the solid-color ones.

For whatever it's worth, I do have 5 different types of pepper plants within about a 20 foot radius, and they are likely promiscuous with their pollen.

I was literally JUST in Detroit for the North American International Auto Show  :'(
