The serrano pepper is a standby in Mexican and some Southeast Asian cuisines. Typically used raw in sauces like pico de gallo, it has a sharper bite than a jalapeño (it ranks between 10,000 and 25,000 on the Scoville scale). Plants, which can vary in height from 1 1/2 to 5 feet, produce numerous peppers. They are typically harvested green.
