The Serrano Tampiqueño Pepper “from the mountains” of Mexico opens up new vistas of heat and flavor. The prolific plant tolerates heat and drought, pushing out loads of 2"-3" cylindrical fruits with colors that range from from grassy green to fizzy orange to berry red, and are spicy at every mesa. Use to add flavor, heat, and syllables to pizza tampiqueño, salsa tampiqueño, steak tampiqueño, or pickles tampiqueño, or dry them and tampi into a queño.
