Often mistaken for red Jalapenos, Red Fresno chiles bear the same general shape and size as a Jalapeno, but with a striking red flesh. They are thick-skinned, fat and smooth, with a conical shape, and rank in the mild range of the Scoville index at up to 8,000 units. Their spiciness resides mainly in the internal cross ribs, membrane and seeds, and when roasted they are somewhat sweet.
