Serrano Peppers are a type of chili pepper that originated in the mountainous regions of the Mexican states of Puebla and Hidalgo. The Scoville rating of the serrano pepper is 10,000 to 25,000, about 3 times as hot as a jalapeno (the higher the Scoville measurement, the hotter the pepper.) The name of the pepper is a reference to the mountains of these regions.
Each container has a dozen or so peppers (approximately 8 oz.). Grown by High Prairie Farm (Brookings), using organic practices.
