Serrano Hot Pepper (75 days)

The Serrano Pepper is a chili pepper that hails from the foothills of Puebla  Mexico.  In fact Serranias in Spanish means foothills. 

The flavor is bright and biting, with a delayed fuse. 

Serrano Peppers are 2"-3" long and a 1/2" in diameter.

Crisp, fresh flavor, it is the hottest pepper commonly available. 

Unripe peppers are green and turn a kaleidoscope of colors from red, brown, orange and yellow as they ripen. 

Serranos are smaller and hotter than a Jalapeno.

These chiles are about five times hotter than jalapenos.

Planting Tips for Heirloom Hot Peppers:

Start these vegetable seeds indoors about 6-8 weeks before your last frost date.  Be sure to keep them in a warm place so that the soil temperature stays above 75°.  Young heirloom pepper plants like it to stay warm and will develope best if kept happy.

Only transplante after the heirloom pepper seedlings have shown several sets of their true leaves and only once you are sure the outside soil temperature is consistently above 65°.  

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
