Tampio Serrano Peppers have long, finger-shaped fruits that are medium-spicy hot and can be used when they are green or red in color. Widely used in Spanish-American cooking, the fruits are excellent for pickling and for adding zest to many dishes.
It is recommended to plant your hot peppers close together, but you can also plant these peppers with other vegetables to allow some shelter from the sun to keep them from drying out. You can plant your peppers with tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplant, escarole, okra, swiss chard and squash. Some companion herbs are basil, oregano, parsley and rosemary. Keep your hot peppers away from beans, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, brussels sprouts and fennel.
