Details

Fresno is a great jalapeño type of pepper for pickling or cooking with. Fresno peppers have a fruitier, smokier flavor than jalapeños. Many prefer the more complex flavors of Fresno peppers over jalapeños, especially those that love to experiment in the kitchen. They also have thinner walls, which make them more conducive to drying.

Fresno peppers were first cultivated in 1952 by Clarence Brown Hamlin, and he named the chili after Fresno, California. Fresno peppers are still widely grown in California. Non-Isolated.
