Fresno Pepper

The Fresno pepper is a popular variety known for its moderate heat and vibrant red color when fully ripe. A close relative of the Jalapeño, the Fresno offers a similar heat profile but with a slightly fruitier flavor, making it a versatile choice for a wide range of culinary applications.

The fruit are typically 2-3 inches long and have a conical shape. They start green and turn a bright red as they mature, signaling their peak flavor and heat. With a Scoville Heat Unit (SHU) rating ranging from 2,500 to 10,000, it offers a moderate kick that appeals to a broad audience.

Fresno pepper seeds will not fail you if looking for a faster-growing mild chili.  Commonly confused for a jalapeno, in comparison

How Fresno Pepper differs from the Jalapeno:

  •  Slightly thinner walls
  • Ripens green, to orange, to red
  • Peppers grow upright
  • Ripens quicker
  • Slightly higher heat rating than the jalapeno
  • Fresno chilis are more commonly consumed red.

Use the Fresno pepper fresh much like one would use a serrano or jalapeno. The peppers can be stuffed, fermented for hot sauce, or eaten fresh if one can tolerate the heat!



Commonly eaten when unripe/green, Red

    Man, I gotta say, these Fresno Pepper Seeds from are legit! I’m kinda new to this whole gardening thing, but these seeds were super easy to get going. Just followed the directions they gave, and boom, two momths after I moved them outside, I got peppers for days.

    The peppers turned out real nice, bright red. They got a good kick but not going to burn your mouth off or nothing. I’ve thrown them in some homemade salsa, used it for a sauce, and even pickled a couple. The taste is on point. got that spice but it doesn’t kill ya.

    Ordered Fresno seeds and they shipped fast, got to Missouri in just 3 days. Planning to use them as stocking stuffers this Christmas. The envelopes look neat – love the big Ohio outline with a chili in the middle.
