Tabasco pepper (Capsicum frutescens) is a chili pepper and displays a vibrant red color when fully ripe with a spicy heat level of 30,000-50,000 SHU. The pepper grows about two inches long and a yellow to orange that eventually ripens to a bright red. Tabasco peppers are about 6-10 times hotter than jalapeno and comparable to cayenne. They grow to be up to 5-6 feet tall and wide and need temps above 75°F during the day and dropping at night to 60-65°F to enrich the flavor.

About Pepper Tabasco

Tabasco peppers are the main ingredient to make the famous branded TABASCO® Sauce. The peppers are picked while ripe with a deep red color, then mashed and mixed with salts. They're then stored in wooden barrels and topped with more salt. These barrels ferment for three years. Afterward, the sauce is mixed with vinegar, then strained and bottled. The peppers register as 30,000-50,000 on the Scoville scale of heat levels.
