A spicy kick perfect for salsas and hot sauce.
Heirloom. A type of chili pepper originating in the mountainous regions of Mexico, Serrano peppers are perfect for salsas, sauces, relishes, garnishes, making hot sauce and more. They are usually best when roasted.
Peppers are small, 1/2” x 2” and borne in abundance, perhaps 60-100 per plant. Very hot even when green, hotter than a jalapeño and much hotter when they turn red.
Where a jalapeño has a nice bite to it, the Serrano steps it up a nice level, and has a fresh flavor similar to the jalapeño.
