Pennington Tabasco Hot Pepper

Your very own tabasco peppers might add the zest and kick your dishes are looking for. They're great for making fresh salsa, homemade tabasco sauce or dehydrating them to make a spicy tabasco chili powder. These bright, beautifully colored peppers contain capsaicin which researchers have found can assist in improving heart health, prevent diabetes and cancer. Easy and fun to grow, choose a sunny garden location or even grow in containers on your patio, deck or walkways. Provide water over the soil at the base of your plant when the top 2" of the soil is dry. Sit back and watch your fruits grow plentifully and enjoy!
