Pepper Gallery Title

(C. frutescens)

TabascoTabasco peppers are the only types of Capsicum frutescens that are well known in North America. These fiery little jewels are the primary ingrediant in tabasco sauce, the famous hot sauce that has been produced in southern Louisiana since 1848 when the peppers were first imported from the State of Tabasco in Mexico. Growers today cannot keep up with demand and tabasco peppers are imported from Columbia and Central America to be mashed in Louisiana. The tabasco plant gets 4-6' tall and is just loaded with peppers.
