Fresh jalepeno chilis - Where to buy in the Zurich area?

Ever since COOP started selling BIO Tortilla Chips (fabulous even without a sauce) I've been making my Nacho sauce by zapping any cheddar cheese I can find together with some jalepeno chilis from a jar that you can get at COOP or Migros.

I'm getting tired of the mushy jalepenos from the jar and was wondering if there is any place to get real jalepenos. Coop, Migros and Jelmoli don't seem to have them.

Thanks for any tips.

Most Coop's and Migro's should have fresh ones, but as far as i remember, the Coop in Kusnacht is a rather small outlet, so would suggest you go to a larger stockist. Failing that, Globus sells them for sure.

Sometimes I see them in my local Migros or at the Coop in Sihlcity and sometimes I don't. Just depends on the day, which doesn't make it easy to plan.

But, I'm sure you can count on El Maiz always having them. They also have black beans! And, they deliver. www.elmaiz.ch

Re: Fresh jalepeno chilis - Where to buy in the Zurich area?

For all sorts of chilies and more, you can't fail to go past WG Heuberger.

http://www.wgheuberger.ch/

He has a small shop, grows his own chillies and also sells the most amazing varieties. His chili tastings are worth it.

I would swing by there. The website isn't the best but it has his address.

Cheers,
Nanda.

A little off topic, but I just propagated my chilli's for the summer season if anyone wants a plant (assuming I get some plants sprouting). No Jalepenos though, mainly habeneros. I don't go for that weak stuff
