Pepper (Chilli) - Tabasco
This type produces good sized fruit, with thin flesh and intense heat. It is used in tabasco sauce. Fruit turns from pale green to orange to red.
Sow indoors from January to April, in soil 0.5 cm deep, in separate pots if possible. Pot on in late May outdoors either in containers as patio plants or in a well protected site. Peppers can be slow to germinate so allow up 35+ days. Compost should not be too moist to prevent the seeds from rotting. All chilli peppers are very sensitive to the cold.
