Around 1866, Edmund McIlhenny of Avery Island, LA was given seeds to to a hot and spicy pepper that came from Mexico. 

A few years later he used this pepper to create the now world famous Tabasco Sauce.

Plants grow up to four feet tall. 

Very prolific. 

Tabasco is picked in the red stage for the spiciest flavor.

Needs a great deal of heat and takes a while to start producing, but very heavy yielding once it does.

If you live in an area with long hot summers, you will not have a problem with Tabasco.

If not...

Some folks plant Tabasco early on in large pots and move them in if the weather is going to be too cold.

Planting Tips for Heirloom Hot Peppers:

Start these vegetable seeds indoors about 6-8 weeks before your last frost date.  Be sure to keep them in a warm place so that the soil temperature stays above 75°.  Young heirloom pepper plants like it to stay warm and will develope best if kept happy.

Only transplante after the heirloom pepper seedlings have shown several sets of their true leaves and only once you are sure the outside soil temperature is consistently above 65°.  

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
