90 days. (C. frutescens) This famous heirloom was introduced into Louisiana in 1848 and became the main ingredient in Tabasco Pepper Sauce. This pepper is very hot and has a delicious flavor. The plants grow up to 4 feet tall and are covered with small, thin peppers. Needs a warm summer or can be grown as a potted plant. Fruit ripen from green to orange, then red.

Review:

Its very nice in a flower garden, but I can't eat any since Minnesota has fewer people who enjoy hot peppers. Difficult to give away.

Review:

When I was a child in Louisiana, everyone use to have them growing along side of their houses as perennials (along with banana trees). My grandmother would always make the grandkids pick these so that she could make pepper vinegar. The plants are so easy to grow, no maintenance at all. I have plants that are at least five years old and still fruiting. I remember grade school field trips to Avery Island to visit the McIIhinney factory- the vast fields of tabasco plants and the choking smell of the barrels of aging hot sauce in the large warehouse. Plant early to get a bumper crop of peppers.

Review:

It was a joy to grow this pepper plant this year I have always been somewhat challenged in growing peppers. These were a cinch. I planted them in small cups in late winter then transplanted them to various containers in early spring. All seeds germinated. Interestingly, the size of the container definitely matters in growing this plant. In my very large pots, the plants grew to 6 feet tall and made hundreds of peppers. In 1 gallon buckets the plants only grew about a foot tall and had very few peppers. I Made about a gallon of hot sauce with the peppers from the two large plants and several smaller ones. I also used the fresh peppers in various dishes over the summer including chili and other foods that required heat. Everything turned out well. I also dried some of the green peppers which are hotter than the red. It makes an excellent powder, akin to cayenne pepper powder but green. I can highly recommend growing this plant.

Review:

I grew these for the first time this year because I couldn't find the tabasco pepper vinegar here anymore. It's a pretty little plant with lots and lots of little peppers. Very decorative in the garden. I did a quick hot pickle of these with some vinegar and spices and it's even better than the store bought brand I used to buy! Seasonings make a big difference to the pickle so pick ones you really like. It's November here now and we've had several frosty nights, including one below zero. The plant is somewhat withered, but still alive and holding its peppers. I'm thinking of bringing it in for the rest of the winter to see if I can keep it alive in my plant room. If you like the green pepper vinegar definitely try this pepper.

Review:

I grew this pepper last year in the border next to our driveway. You would not believe the sheer amount of peppers that this thing put out! We really had peppers that was ripe eveyday. This thing was literally LOADED with green,yellow,orange and red peppers all the time. Me and my grandfather had enough off ONE plant for the whole year. This thing was huge and came up to just above my waist and I am 5"11. The flavor of these little buggers was very hot and very tasy and it was very easy to grow after being started. Very good pickled but would not dry them. Kept on keeping on until the 15 degree winter weather killed it. Almost no problems with bugs, none with diseases or anything else. I will be growing it again and suggest it be tried at least once by anyone who loves hot peppers.
