Fresno is a medium-sized chili pepper with ruby red skin. They are similar in appearance to jalapeños except that they are red with a sharper tip. Fresno peppers are sweet, fruity, and incredibly aromatic with a mild amount of spiciness. They are perfect for adding a light kick and an incredible amount of flavor to your foods. The capsaicin of peppers come from the white pith and ribs which can be removed to reduce the spiciness. Fresno peppers have between 2,500 and 10,000 Scoville heat units.
Uses: Fresno peppers can be used in any recipes that call for chili peppers. They're exceptionally delicious roasted or grilled until the skin is blistered.
