Description

[80 days] Originally from Mexico, the Tabasco pepper produces small, very hot peppersthat start from yellow-green and later turn to red. The plants grow up to four feet tall and are very prolific once they start producing. They do need a lot of heat, however, to get going.

Tabasco peppers can be used fresh, or dried and ground into a powder. They are definitely one of the hotter peppers, and if you haven’t used them before, go easy with them your first time around. If you like it hot, make sure to wait until they’re red before harvesting.

As long as you have enough heat (at least 6 hours of full sun a day), this hot pepper is easy to grow in the greenhouse or in containers on a sunny patio.

Height: 50cm (20”). Spread: 40cm (16”).

Note: If you have access to grow lights and a heated propagator you can start sowing your plants in December and January to give you a head start on the year.
