Where can I find Red Jalapeno Peppers?

jduque | Jul 31, 2012 06:23 PM

I am working on some hot sauce recipes, and need to find a store (or farmer, or other producer) that will sell me red jalapenos.

Preferably they would be located near South Peninsula/South bay, but I would be interested in knowing ANYWHERE that sells them -- I have yet to see them ever in a store, yet, but I have to believe that they do, in fact, exist, as many recipes call for them. Perhaps they are not in season?

So far I've been using red fresno chilies (look similar, but more conical, thinner skin, fruitier flavor), which I found at Lion Market off Tully Rd. in San Jose, but they are just not the same.

Any pointers would be very appreciated! Thanks.
