Pepper ‘Tabasco’ is a very tasty hot chilli pepper. It is the famous ingredient of Tabasco sauce and worth growing for cooking and for the making of spicy sauces. Plants produce clusters of peppers, ripening from green to orange to red, with the best spicey flavours in the fully red ripened fruits. Plants grow to a manageable height of 50-70cm and grow well in the ground as well as containers. These are medium hot chillies with a Scoville rating of 30,000 – 50,000.
Tabasco peppers grow and ripen best in long hot summers or in a greenhouse. Plants produce ripened fruits within about 90 days (depending on the weather) and harvest from June/July to September/October.
