Tabasco Hot Chile Pepper

85-90 days. Cultivated in Mexico since the early 1800's, this Chile Pepper was made famous in the US with the 1868 introduction of the McIlhenny Company's hot pepper sauce, Tabasco. Producing a compact plant from 2' to 4' high, Tabasco is well-suited for container gardening: its pods are just 3/8" wide by 1" long. Tabasco's fruits start yellow or green and ripen to bright red, which visually cues one in to its Scoville rating: a blistering hot 30,000 to 50,000! Tabasco's distinctive, hot-smoky flavor and its fiery heat make it one of the most recognized and famous of all Peppers! Undoubtedly, Tabasco is the heat in hot sauce. (OP.)
