The heirloom Tabasco pepper has an incredible amount of juice for a smaller pepper! The Tabasco chili pepper has a quality that makes it excellent for making your own Tabasco hot sauce. The Tabasco pepper plant was introduced into Louisiana in 1848 and became the main ingredient in making the famous Tabasco Hot Sauce.

The Tabasco chili pepper is medium-hot and has a delicious smoky flavor that you will want to add to everything. The prolific and vigorous plant grows to 4 feet tall and will produce small, thin peppers that will cover the entire plant! We love it when there is a colorful array of green Tabasco peppers, red Tabasco peppers, and yellow Tabasco peppers growing at the same time. The Tabasco chili will ripen from green, orange, to finally red. Spicy and sassy....give this a try in your chili pepper recipes.

Tabasco Hot Pepper Seeds

Zachary Klein
One of the best

These peppers are quite small. About an inch or two. I love then because they are small enough to just pluck off and eat like a snack. They are quite hot, but they won't kill you like others. The flavor is amazing. Out of all 10 different plants I grew this year, the flavor is second to the ají limón.

I planted all of the seeds I ordered: tobasco, habenero, and datil. I put them in seed cups over 3 weeks ago, and they have not come up. They have been in the sun and watered.

Brian Hall

Plants had very curled leaves. Planted three kinds of peppers at same time. Others looked well but Tabasco looked bad. I just culled them.
