Pepper - Tabasco
This variety produces small, upright yellow-green fruits about 1 inch long turning scarlet when ripe. Chilli pepper tabasco is extremely hot.
Sow seeds from March to early April thinly on the surface of a good free draining compost. Cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place in a propagator at 18-20C until after germination, which usually takes 10 days. Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm pots. Plant in final situation when 1cm high, 45cm apart. For indoor crops, plant into growbags or pots. For outdoor crops, acclimatise plants for 1-15 days before planting on. Feed weekly with a high potash tomato fertiliser once first fruits have set.
