It looks like a jalapeño and even tastes like a jalapeño, but the Fresno pepper has a few tricks up its sleeve that makes it a very popular chili in its own right. It delivers a slightly spicier medium heat (2,500 to 10,000 Scoville heat units), often like a mild serrano chili, and in its mature red form, the Fresno pepper has a more complex fruitier, smokier taste than a jalapeño. This is a favourite for foodies looking for a twist on the norm. Fresno chilies were first cultivated in 1952 by Clarence Brown Hamlin, and he named the chili after Fresno, California.

Thick, fleshy, bullet shaped hot pepper, 6 x 2.5 cm. Ripens from green to red, with a smooth skin and medium thick flesh. Good flavour, medium hot.
