Serrano peppers originated from Mexico. Serranos are commonly used in cooking, especially in Mexican dishes. The thin-walled peppers are 2 to 3 inches long and should be picked when green, but can be picked when red for more heat. Serranos are similar to jalapenos, but smaller and hotter. Serranos are heavy producers; each plant can hold up to 50 pepper pods. These peppers are perfect for drying, eating raw, or making salsa.
