80 day- 15,000 + scovilles- medium to hot
The name serrano, refers to the mountainous region (sierras) of Puebla in Mexico.
The serrano pepper is similar to a smaller, hotter version of the jalapeno, identical in color,
but only 1 to 2 inches in length.
Mature plants reach a height of 1-1/2 to 5 feet tall. Each plant can hold up to fifty pepper pods.
Staking is recommended.
The serrano Scoville rating can range between 10,000 and 25,000 SHU's. Variable weather and climate will affect the zing.
The flavor is crisp, bright, and biting, notably hotter than the jalapeno and they are typically eaten raw. Serrano peppers are also used in making pico de gallo and salsa and a favorite for chili.
These are meaty peppers and are not the best choice for drying.
A personal favorite for me. I stuff them with cream cheese, and throw them under the broiler.
15 seeds per pack.
