Where to find Red Jalapeños & Red Serrano peppers?

  • 8

Does anyone know where I can buy red jalapeño and red serrano chile peppers in LA? Preferably on the east side? I've found Fresno peppers at Whole Foods. And green chiles are everywhere. But I can't seem to track down red jalapeños and red serranos. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

        Same here at my Von's Pacific Palisades on PCH~
        Red jalapeños, but no serranos

      2. I found both at the Northgate supermarket on the corner of Prairie and Rosecrans.

        1. Vallarta Market...various locations.
          I don't know for sure, but they always seem to have an abundant supply of peppers.

          1. my understanding is that these peppers continue to ripen if simply left at room temperature. don't know if they get sweeter like they would still on the vine though.

            1. i saw them this week at super king (altadena). i should have taken a pic.

                right now they are in season and I have seen red serranos, jalapenos, fresh red chile de arbol and red cayenne all at the SM FM. Korean markets will usually have red fresnos and jalapenos as well
