Hot Pepper - Serrano 50 seeds
Originally from the Mexican mountains. Serrano peppers are a bit hotter than Jalapenos. Popular in salsa and different Mexican dishes. The plants grow about 90 cm tall and the fruits are 7 - 10 cm long maturing from green to red. Bright, crisp, biting taste.
Sow the Serrano chilli seeds about 1 cm deep into a seed tray or in small pots or cells. Cover lightly, water and place inside at between 20-25 Celsius. To aid germination, place the tray in a plastic bag. Sow January-March. Germination can be slow with some hot peppers. As soon as seedlings are large enough to handle, prick out.Transplant the seedlings into small individual pots. Use rich compost and keep the plants between 20-30 Celsius during the growing season. For best production keep the plants in the greenhouse. Regular feeding is recommended.
