One of the best seed strain producing lots and lots of HOT chilli peppers
Originally from Mexico-and taking its name from a Mexican state-this small, very hot pepper's a favorite in the South and East, where the plants can grow tall and are covered with the petite light yellow-green to red fruits. Best known as the pepper that lends the kick to the namesake hot sauce from Avery Island, Louisiana.
This chili pepper is a must-have for any chili connoisseur or spicy food enthusiast. Hand-selected for its high-quality genetics and grown in the traditional way of the Tabasco region, our Heirloom Tabasco Hot Chili Pepper is sure to bring the authentic taste of the famous hot sauce to your dishes. With a Scoville rating of around 50,000-150,000 units, these chili peppers pack a serious punch, making them perfect for adding a fiery kick to any dish, such as sauces, marinades, and rubs.
This is an open-pollinated heirloom with 1- to 1½-inch-long fruit that turns from green to bright red at maturity. Growing in a bushy, well-branched form, it reaches 4 feet high and sets hundreds of fruit over a long summer season. Boasting native vigor, it is left alone by pests and diseases, and does a good job keeping nibbling bugs away from the vegetable garden with its spicy scent and flavor.
Harvest can be done at any time as soon you see the chili but best until it turns red when fully matured. The longer the chili grows in plant the hotter and pungent it gets and there is no disappointment the yields at any point.
