This mild hot red pepper was first released in 1952 and named after the city in California. Today, many consider it to be one of the best peppers out there.

Fresno pepper plants are known to be very productive and easy to grow. You might consider pickling much of your harvest or cooking new peppery dishes. Whatever you choose to do with your Fresno Pepper harvest, these healthy live pepper seedlings give you a headstart to it all!
WARNING: Plants adjust to small, gradual changes in their environment better than sudden shifts, which is what the hardening off process is all about. Just as you get burned when you bare your untanned skin to the sun, leaves of plants started indoors will develop pale, sunburned patches if they are suddenly exposed to too much sun. The story has a happier ending when you introduce seedlings to bright light and sheltered breezes gradually, over a period of one to three weeks.
