Don't be fooled by its size, the Tampiqueno Serrano pepper has a big kick! Originating from Mexico, the pepper's name means "from the mountains" in Spanish, indicating these peppers live close to the mountains. These are very popular Serrano pepper for Mexican cuisine used for their distinctive flavor and heat!

Tampiqueno Serrano pepper plants grow up to 3 ft., or much taller when directly sown into the ground, and produce many small peppers. Expect them to grow between 2-3" long and ripen from green to bright red. These peppers are hot at either stage of maturity, so really it depends on what color you prefer having these peppers harvested at.

The heat on Tampiqueno Serrano peppers is around 5 times hotter than the Jalapeno (8,000-22,000+ SHUs), so be prepared for more than just a "little bit of heat." It's the perfect amount to pair with the spicy flavors these peppers provide. A real favorite with our friends south of the border, this is great to use in your favorite salsas, soups, and stews.
