Pepper (Hot) - Fresno Chili 🔥🔥


$299 USD
Title

Description


The Fresno Chili Pepper is a fun one to follow as it grows. The immature green fruit starts out pointing upward, and has a green, grassy flavor with mild heat. As the color changes through orange to bright red, the fruit hangs down, and the flavor changes to smoky and fruity with a bit more heat than a Jalapeño. These 3" tapered peppers are large enough to stuff, and small enough to pickle. Traditionally used to liven up ceviche, but it’s okay to grill that fish instead and make tacos topped with Fresno chili sauce. Excellent for roasting on the BBQ - or even pickling.
