Serrano Hot Chile Pepper

75-90 days. Remarkable for fresh salsas, Serrano was first grown in northern Puebla and Hidalgo in Mexico. This ever-bearing Chile produces loads of 2" by 1/2", flame-shaped fruit on plants growing to 3' tall. These hot, spicy beauties with Scoville units about 10,000 to 20,000 are #1 in Mexican markets, used from green to orange-red for salsas or fire-roasted to accompany meat and chicken. Try this unusual salsa: toast four to five Serrano (membrane and seeds removed) in a little oil and turn until fragrant. Grill six to eight Roma Tomatoes until skin is evenly charred. Toss in blender, with two to three fresh Tomatoes, two Garlic cloves and salt. Heaven with homemade tortillas. (OP.)
