Love Jalapenos but want a green spicy pepper with a little kick? Try out our Serrano peppers from Pepper Joe's! The name "serrano" is a reference to the mountains in the Mexican states of Puebla and Hidalgo. This small finger-shaped Mexican staple is hotter than a Jalapeño and heats up to 25,000 SHUs!

Grow these Serrano plants to around 2-1/2 to 3 ft, tall in your garden. These plants are very productive, growing these 4" long conical-shaped pods. 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.

Serrano chili peppers have similar flavors to Jalapenos, and are a great-tasting pepper with medium-thin walls that are perfect for stuffing! 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.

  • Heat Level: 25,000+ SHUs  
  • Type: Medium Hot
  • Flavor: Spicy, Earthy
  • Germination Rate: 91%

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.

1st time pepper start

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.
