Purple Serrano Pepper Seed

Size

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 are milder in spice.  The similarity they share is having the same shape, resembling a candle-flame shape.  Ripens from green to purple, Serrano Chilie will have sweet, fresh flavors with some spice.  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.  This is delicious to add to your Pico de Gallo, salads, and salsas!

Fun Fact: Serrano in Spanish means “of the mountain” and “highlander.”

Fabulous pepper

For starters, I couldn't believe the harvest that I got. Enormous numbers of purple serranos. When I eat them when purple, they are mildly hot. However, I just couldn't get to all of them, so I harvested many of them when they were a beautiful red. Boy were they hot then. I use them as fresh hot pepper as a garnish on my foods rather than dried cayenne pepper. This is an awesome plant. All your peppers germinated beautifully, Small plants that made it easy to grow in pots, but I have never seen small plants produce such enormous harvests. I have had much bigger plants that produce less.

Thank you so much for sharing! I am glad you had such a great harvest!

Needs extra soaking but will germinate with enough heat.

These more exotic varieties need a little more TLC than normal to germinate (heat, soaking, etc) but once they start the success rate is good (70-80% or more). Like the selection a lot and the customer service is really amazing. I got free seeds for Roma tomatoes and cilantro as well as mega-hot peppers (scorpions) to grow my own salsa, which is a really nice touch. Both of those germinated and are doing well. Will be buying live plants from this company in the spring, the selection of peppers is amazing.

Waste of Money

Bought 5 varieties of pepper from this company, including this one, and all of the seeds were garbage. Livid, I gave these seeds so much TLC and optimum conditions; heat, moisture, soaking. Not a single god damn seed germinated even after 30+ days of waiting. Epic waste of time and money, I will never buy from this seller again.
