TABASCO PEPPER (85 days)

2

Germ 10-14 days
Heirloom
This pepper was imported to the US from Tabasco, Mexico in 1846. Eventually it made its way to Avery Island, Louisiana where the McIlhenny family used it in a hot sauce that has become so renowned that the word “Tabasco” is now used as a synonym for hot sauce. Plants are over 1’ tall and covered with 2” long tapered fruit. 20 seeds

PLANTING:

Indoors- Start 8-10 weeks before last frost, 1/4” deep with soil temperatures 70-80 degrees. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Transplant 18” apart when danger of frost has passed and when soil is 65 degrees.

Harvest- Using a sharp instrument, pick first fruits when they reach usable size, this helps accelerate the growth of the other peppers on the plant. Leave some on to mature, to color and sweeten up.

Tips- Plant in fertile, well composted soil, mulch and provide adequate water. It helps to use row cover early in the season giving the plants extra warmth, especially in the north. Side dress when flowers begin to form.
