your own tabasco! The famed pepper of
Avery Island, Louisiana was grown in the mid 1800’s by Edmund McIlhenny for his
now world-famous Tabasco sauce. This pepper
comes in at 30-50,00 Scovilles, starts out green, then yellow-orange and is
finished when it turns red. Does best in
long, hot summers. Here in Northern
Illinois, we grow them in pots and bring them in for winter. 95 days.
