Each month, we launch limited release seedlings that feature seasonally driven, food-forward varieties that are sure to stand out on your Farmstand and make an impression in the kitchen. They will only be available while supplies last so don’t wait to place your order!



Is it just us, or is it getting hot in here? If you’re hoping to spice up your summer, you came to the right place. This month’s limited release seedlings are bringing the heat (and a little something sweet), from salsas and ceviches to poolside grill tops. Now, get to know Serrano and Carmen Peppers!

Read on to learn about this month’s Limited Release seedlings and don't forget to stop by our store to order them before they’re gone for good!

Get to Know Serrano Pepper

Flavor

Trying to gauge your serrano harvest’s heat before you cook? As a rule of thumb, the average Serrano Pepper is two to five times as intense as a jalapeño. Consider these the perfect spice-lover’s substitute, with a touch of earthy flavor.

Plant Care

This variety boasts surprising size, with peppers measuring up to 5 inches long. The good news? With proper nutrients, seedlings will yield peppers even more quickly than some of the serrano’s smaller cousins.

Health Benefits

Serrano peppers are standout sources of Vitamin A, which supports a healthy immune system and promotes healthy cell growth. You’ll also get plenty of fiber and a host of heart health benefits.

Get to Know Carmen Pepper

Flavor

Plot twist! Carmen Peppers may look spicy, but they’re actually a sweet Italian variety. (Think red bell peppers, with even more flavor.) Try roasting or grilling your crop to celebrate their full potential.

Plant Care

While Carmen Peppers turn a brilliant red by harvest time, they actually begin green. Expect each pepper to reach about 6” long, and get excited: These beauties thrive both indoors and out.

Health Benefits

Like other sweet varieties, Carmen peppers are full of Vitamin C and antioxidant-rich carotenoids. Eat up!
