Originating from Mexico, the Tabasco pepper is most well known for being the pepper used to make tabasco sauce. It is very hot with a delicious smoky flavor, which makes it perfect for hot sauces. The peppers themselves are small, being less than 2 inches long. Peppers grow upright and turn from yellow to orange to red. Unique to the Tabasco pepper is the fact that the peppers are not dry on the inside, which means the inside of the pepper is juicy. Bushy and compact, the Tabasco pepper is suited for containers.
