The Q&A Archives: Fresno Peppers

Question: I want to grow Fresno peppers here in Washington State and cannot find any seeds or plants. Where can I get the seeds
to grow Fresno Peppers? They were availiable in California.
But I can't find any here. Can you help me?

Answer: Fresno peppers are medium hot 4" long chile peppers used primarily in salsas. They need a longer growing season than your region provides, but starting the seeds indoors in late winter and transplanting good sized seedlings into a sunny spot in the garden where reflected heat can help ripen the fruits might provide you with the chiles you crave.

It's probably too late to start seeds this year, but you can purchase seeds from The Pepper Gal, PO Box 23006, Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33307-3006 for starting indoors next January.
