Christmas in May?
This serrano pepper plant seems to think so. Planted last spring, it survived last summer's drought, bloomed and fruited last fall, successfully overwintered, burst into bloom again a few weeks ago, and set oodles of peppers I never used or harvested.
Suddenly I have a hankering for a Kung-Pao-style chicken. Who's got good recipes for ripe serrano peppers?
