Chilli 'Tabasco' (Capsicum frutescens)
Wow! That's what everyone says when they see this plant with 500 yellow, orange and red fruit. It is a stunning ornamental shrub.
Plant in a protected spot out of fierce sunlight and wind in a well-drained but moist soil. May need some support when it ages.
The famous McIllhenny Tabasco sauce from Louisiana is made from this chilli. Adds authentic flavour to cajan/creole dishes but can be used in all cuisines.
