Love Jalapenos but want a green spicy pepper with a little kick? This small finger-shaped Mexican staple is hotter than a Jalapeño and heats up to 25,000 SHUs! The Serrano pepper is similar in color and fresh flavor, but smaller and meatier. They will ripen from green to red, but they are commonly red, brown, orange, or yellow. You’re likely to harvest them in their green color. The Serrano chili pepper is a great tasting pepper that will grow up to 4” long with medium-thin walls that are perfect for stuffing! The Serrano pepper plant will grow to around 30 inches long and are productive to grow. 

Try including the Serrano chile into your Pico de Gallo or salsa for a truly authentic flavor, or for relishes, garnishes, hot sauces, roasting, and pan cooked. 

Fun Fact: The name serrano is a reference to the mountains in the Mexican states of Puebla and Hidalgo.

Species: Capsicum Annuum

Heat Level: 25,000+ SHUs

Great Seed and Great Varieties

I buy seed from Pepper Joe’s every year at least once. Every variety I have chosen has had a great germination rate and produced healthy plants. They also carry varieties from Europe that I have a difficult time finding. This company is my go-to for peppers.

10 seeds and 10 sprouts!

So far so good

I'm satisfied. The serrano seeds had a germination rate of about 67%. Seedlings have been re-potted and are doing well. they'll be going into the garden in about 3 weeks.
