Serrano is a tried and true capsicum variety. This variety originates from the Mexican mountain regions, and has gained popularity around the world due to its wonderful and complex flavours, sweetness, and versatillity. These plants can grows to be about 4 feet tall, and 3 feet wide. They yield in abundance, and can easily produce dozens of pods with minimal effort. The fruits taste amazing fresh, but are often used to make sauce as well. Coming in at 10,000 - 20,000 scovilles, these peppers are hotter than jalapeños. but still relatively moderate compared to other capsicums. Depending on the recipe, Serrano peppers can be picked green or red.

  • Growing Instructions

    It's best to start pepper seeds as early in the season as possible; we start them here on the farm in January. It's good to sow them in a sterile growing medium; most available seed starting soils should do the job nicely; we use sunshine mix (peat moss and perlite). The soil should be made moist, but not damp. Sow the seeds 1/4 inch below the soil surface. Store in a warm area until tiny sprouts emerge from the soil. A heat mat aids in this step, but is not necessary. Seeds can take between 4-8 weeks to germinate, but they can sometimes take less time too. Once germinated, and the first true leaf has formed, it's time to pot up to a larger container that contains a good quality potting soil. Transplant to their final location when the nighttime temperatures are consistently 8°C or higher. These peppers grow very well in pots or containers; I recommend 5 gallon pots or larger. Peppers do best when grown in full sun.
