When to harvest my Peppers??

I am new to gardening.

I have 2 pepper plants, a Serrano and a Long Thin Cayanne..

Correct me if I am wrong, the Serrano should be eaten when green, the Cayanne when red..

Ironically, I left a Serrano Pepper too long and it turned red, when I tasted it, it was horrible, too old. And my Cayanne hasn't turn red, its very light green..

I've taken a couple of peppers "thinking" that they were ready and when I would cut them I noticed the seeds were still forming and tender, and the taste was not close to the one of a pepper..

I have not idea when to harvest my peppers.. any ideas? :(
