You may have heard of the traditional Serrano pepper, but have you heard of the prolific Purple Serrano? Also known as the Purple Serrano Chili, Serrano Chili, or Serrano Chili Pepper, this beautiful purple-colored pepper is slightly longer than the traditional serrano pepper and is milder in spice.

The similarity they share is the same shape, resembling a candle-flame shape. These pods grow up to around 4" long and have beautiful shiny purple skin. Purple Serranos ripen from green to purple but don’t forget to harvest them when they turn purple because if you leave the Purple Serrano on the plant for too long, they will turn red!

Serrano Chilie will have sweet, fresh flavors with a mild spice. Heat levels for these peppers range anywhere between 8,000-22,000 SHUs. This is a delicious and unique variety to add to your Pico de Gallo, salads, and salsas!

Getting Started

So, you've received your seeds and are wondering what's next? At Pepper Joe's, we're committed to equipping you with everything you need to succeed in germinating the pepper seeds you've chosen. Our mission is to introduce you to a diverse array of pepper varieties, setting the stage for an exciting and rewarding gardening experience. Let's dive into the essentials together.

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
