250 mg per seed package/Seed Package Contains Approx. 30-45 heirloom pepper seeds.
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.
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.
Some folks plant Tabasco early on in large pots and move them in if the weather is going to be too cold.
The original red variety of Tabasco pepper measures 30,000–50,000 Scoville Units
I haven’t had a problem !
Everything is looking good!
I started them in the container you see in the picture. I dropped a seed a 1/4 inch deep in some potting soil, watered them and left them outside in 100% sunlight.
Not very happy with the seeds could not get one to come up. Don't know if it was just bad seeds or what. Did everything I should have done but not one grew
As they're not producing yet I can only review my experience to-date... All seeds were successful, and VERY strong little seedlings. They're growing fantastically and I'm excited to see the yield!
Right now they are between 2-4 inches high. I started them indoors on a heat mat, with a blue&red grow light. I’d say at least 90% germinated, which I didn’t expect, so hard to do some harsh thinning, which always breaks my heart. ☹️ So far, am loving these seeds. Will send a picture later when they are growing peppers
