The Serrano pepper is a type of chili pepper that is hot, pungent, and has a flavor that is crisp, bright and biting. Notably hotter than a jalapeño pepper, the heat level can range between 5,000- 30,000 scoville. Serrano pepper plants grow to 3′ tall and produce fruits that are 2 1/2″ – 4″ inches long and 1/2″ wide, with medium thin walls. They are picked when green and eaten raw or used in salsas. Reaches maturity 90 days after transplant. Peppers act as annuals in northern zones, but are truly a perennial plant in tropical, frost-free zones. Full sun.
