Bullet shaped chiles average 2” long x 1/2" wide, are thick fleshed with very small seed cavities and mature from lime green to red. The pods grow on tall 30 inch plants.
Plants are very, very productive. It is not uncommon for a plant to hold up to fifty pepper pods. Perfect for salsas, sauces, relishes, garnishes, and more. They are unusually good when roasted. Chefs tend to use Serrano over Jalapenos due to their consistent (albeit higher) heat levels.
"Serrano" translated to English means 'from the mountains', after the mountain ridges of Puebla and Hidalgo in Mexico from where they are thought to have originated.
