The name Tabasco is seen'd have to be living under a rock to not have heard the name before. This famous heirloom variety was introduced into Louisiana back in 1848 and became the main ingredient in making the famous Tabasco Hot Sauce!

Tabasco pepper plants are prolific and vigorous, growing up to 4 ft. tall and producing 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.

You'll notice a spicy medium hot heat that comes with a delicious smoky flavor that you'll want to add to just about everything! These peppers have an incredible amount of juice for such a tiny variety! This quality makes Tabasco peppers an excellent option for making your own Tabasco hot sauce. Gives these chili peppers a try in your garden and in your own pepper recipes!

Hi Keith,
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! We're sorry to hear that you didn't have luck getting these to grow. Pepper plants can be finicky! Here are all of our tips and advice for germinating seeds: And feel free to contact our customer service if you have any questions!

Getting Started

So, you've received your seeds and are wondering what's next? At Pepper Joe's, we're committed to equipping you with everything you need to succeed in germinating the pepper seeds you've chosen. Our mission is to introduce you to a diverse array of pepper varieties, setting the stage for an exciting and rewarding gardening experience. Let's dive into the essentials together.

  • What You'll Need

    Soil and Tray Method

    Seed Starting Supplies 
  • Plant your Seeds

    1. Pre-saturate your seed starting soil mix. Ensure the seed starting mix is fully saturated prior to planting your seed.
    2. Make a ¼-inch hole in the center of each seed starting cell. A #2 pencil eraser is a great tool for making these holes.
    3. Place your seed and cover gently with soil.
      You can plant up to 4 seeds per cell to help ensure successful germination.
  • 4. Place your heat mat under  your base tray and your humidity dome on top. For best results, set your temperature controller between 75 - 80 degrees.

    5. Place your plant light above the seed starting tray and turn on. Refer to the plant light manufacturers instructions for the optimal distance. Plant light should remain on for 14 to 16 hours per day.

    6. Enjoy watching them grow! See our full instruction page below for more information.
