Tabasco Pepper has been planted 1 time by Growstuff members.

Tabasco peppers are unripe, small, thin chili peppers about 5cm long. They originated in Mexico and have a Scoville rating of 30,000 to 50,000. Like other Capsicum frutescens varieties, the peppers remain upright when ripe rather than hanging (like a bell pepper). They are the only Capsicum frutescens variety that is juicy (the fruit is not dry inside like other peppers) and are famous for their use in Tabasco sauce. Like other peppers, Tabasco peppers ripen from green to red and can be harvested while green and unripe or red and ripe.
