The serrano pepper originated in the mountainous regions of the Mexican states of Puebla and Hidalgo. If you love Jalapenos but want a little extra kick, these are your guys. Probably one of the most widely used chillies in the world, they are perfect in salsas, relishes and sauces and are great for frying too! They are commonly eaten green but if you want them a little sweeter, you can let them turn red on the bush. Everyone should grow these!
