    Chilli Serrano - Bishy Barnabees Cottage Garden

    Product Details

    Description

    The Serrano is a medium-hot chilli pepper originating from Mexico.  The chilli pods start out green and mature to red when ripe and have a lovely, lively heat.  It is late to mature and can easily be still producing well into October and November.

    It has a thick and crunchy flesh which makes it great for slicing and dicing into dishes

    Plant Care Tips

    Sow a few seeds into a tray in late January to May and cover lightly with seed compost.  Either use a heated propagator or pop the seed tray into an enclosed plastic bag and seal it and place it on a windowsill. Once the seedling has produced two true leaves (second set of leaves) they can be transplanted into individual pots.  Try and maintain around 20-25 degrees while young plants.

    As the plant grows, transplant it into as large a pot as allows, this will determine the size of the plant.  Once the plant has flowered and has started to produce small chillies, it will benefit from a feed of either comfrey tea or tomato feed.  Chillies dislike irregular watering as this will sometimes cause blossom end rot (the base of the chilli/pepper rots)
