Details

Serrano is essential for fresh, spicy dishes. The small, sturdy peppers are perfect for salsas, salads and guac, plus, they make a great pickled pepper. Although Serrano peppers are too small to stuff, they are preferred by many over jalapenos for their heat and flavor. Medium sized plants might require a bit of staking toward the end of the season.

Start indoors 8-10 weeks before last frost in very warm spot (80 degrees is ideal). Keep seedlings in a well-ventilated place at 70+ degrees and do not over water. Transplant outdoors in full sun into rich, well drained soil after threat of frost has passed. Peppers can tolerate dryness and heat, but need moderate water to produce fruit and prefer to be watered at the base.
